Mechanical Engineering

Program Highlights

Mechanical engineers design, develop, test, manufacture and maintain machines, systems, devices and components for the betterment of society. Of all the engineering disciplines, mechanical engineering is the most diversified and offers the largest selection of career paths. If you can see it or touch it, a mechanical engineer probably helped to create it.

Mechanical engineers may deal with hardware as small as a microchip or as large as an aircraft carrier. They may work from the bottom of the ocean up to the weightless environment of interplanetary space.

The Louisiana Tech Mechanical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET. To find out more information about the program mission, educational objectives, student outcomes and enrollment and graduation data, go to our Accreditation & Enrollment page.
