I chose to come to the University of Mount Union to play volleyball and to pursue engineering. There are countless opportunities available on campus both in my field of study and as an athlete. Mount Union offers endless possibilities for students with different interests, so no student should feel excluded.
Mechanical Engineering Careers
A major in mechanical engineering, one of the broadest disciplines in the field, can open the door to limitless possibilities. The Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates that, by trade, mechanical engineers research, design, develop, manufacture and test tools, engines, machines and other mechanical devices. Some develop tools that other engineers use in their daily work, while others choose to pursue careers in agriculture production, maintenance, technical sales, administration and management.

With a unique program that provides mechanical engineering skill building with a solid foundation in the liberal arts, we are meeting the demand for well-rounded engineering graduates. With hands-on activities and useful classroom time, you will develop a professional work ethic in preparation for career opportunities including:
- Energy and green technologies
