B.S. in Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineers design, manufacture, and control machines ranging from robots to aircraft and spacecraft. They also design engines and power plants that drive these machines, analyze the environmental impact associated with power generation, and strive to promote environmental quality. To achieve their goals, mechanical engineers use mathematics, physics, and chemistry together with engineering science and technology in areas such as fluid mechanics, heat transfer, dynamics, controls, and atmospheric science.

“The school’s emphasis on experiential learning is attracting high-achieving students who want more than a classroom experience. We are excited about our new Moonshot Initiative, a hands-on program that intends to make UCI the first academic institution to launch a liquid-fuel rocket into space. Thanks to a $1 million gift from Base 11, the program will include a mobile rocket lab for transporting prototypes to test sites and making off-site repairs.”
