Considering Howard University for Mechanical Engineering?

Mechanical Engineers apply the principles of mechanics and energy to the design of machines and devices. They must be able to control mechanical systems and usually work with other professionals in designing these systems. Automobiles, engines, heating and air-conditioning systems, gas and steam turbines, air and space vehicles, trains, ships, servomechanisms, transmission mechanisms, machine tools, material handling systems, elevators and escalators, and robots used in industry are a few of the systems and devices requiring mechanical engineering knowledge.

Mechanical engineers are involved in a variety of industries including, but not limited to:

  • Energy
  • Automotive
  • Aerospace
  • Defense
  • Consumer Goods
  • Education
  • Construction

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Howard University offers dynamic educational programs and a faculty poised to deliver quality engineering education. The department also offers the following degree programs: Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, Master of Engineering and the Doctor of Philosophy. The Master of Engineering and Ph.D. programs also include interdisciplinary degrees in Atmospheric Sciences and Materials Sciences.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Howard University is one of the five academic departments in the College of Engineering and Architecture (CEA) accredited by the Engineering Accreditation commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).
