Mechanical Engineering is one of the oldest and most wide-ranging of the engineering disciplines and considered a cornerstone for any engineering faculty. The multidimensional discipline includes exploring sources of renewable energy, developing new tools for medical diagnostics and devising ways to create a cleaner and healthier environment. Mechanical engineers have a broad range of technical skills, equipping them with the knowledge to complete diverse engineering tasks.
New frontiers offer new challenges. Space Engineering tackles these challenges by combining unique technical skills to design solutions to Earth’s problems using space-based assets while utilizing the principles of systems engineering. These solutions require knowledge of all engineering disciplines, combined with the knowledge of unique space environments — both in orbit and on other planets.
