The Mechanical Engineering major (designated as a pre-major) is a combination of two course stems. In the Thermal/Fluids stem, students study fluid mechanics, heat transfer and thermodynamics. In the Materials/Mechanical Systems stem, students study engineering materials and manufacturing processes along with control systems and machine design. Students can also add a variety of electives to their degree plan. This helps develop their specialized area of interest. Available courses include:
Mechanical Engineer majors can expect to find job opportunities in many positions and industries including aerospace, architecture, oil and gas, and many others. Many students also continue their education in the engineering field at Baylor and other institutions.
Baylor offers three residential housing options for students wishing to live in a community of students with similar interests. Among these is the Teal Residential College for Engineering and Computer Science located in the East Village residential area.
