Built, for the future

One of the fundamental – and most diverse – engineering disciplines, mechanical and energy engineering equips men and women to make a difference on the smallest micro-scale level, as well as in large, complex systems. Each day, mechanical engineering principles are used in the conception, design, development, and manufacture of almost every product or process known to man.

MEE Academic Programs

MEE is home to two academic programs that put the world is at your fingertips. You'll have many job choices, and the opportunity to work in well-established or developing industries.

Mechanical Engineering

Make the world run better, idea by implemented idea.

The hallmark engineering discipline, mechanical engineering equips you to design, create, build, maintain, and improve just about anythingfrom toys and machines, to cars and engines, to medical devices, space equipment and more. Put your ideas in action with a world-renowned Purdue University Mechanical Engineering degree from IUPUI.
