Mechanical engineering has long been one of the more engineering disciplines, encompassing specialties such as acoustics, aerospace, automation, automotive, composites and materials, and autonomous systems. Mechanical engineers get involved in manufacturing, control, mechanical design, and system dynamics and control.
The continuing emergence of autonomous systems, robotics, and advanced industrial control systems is helping to paint a bright outlook for degreed mechanical engineers. Mechanical engineering is a staple in almost all engineering programs at both the undergraduate and graduate level.
In this list compiled by the education site College Factual, Design News lists the top 25 rated engineering programs, shown in the gallery below.
