Careers with Mechanical Engineering degree

Degree Information

The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering degree requires 125 hours. Although there are suggested course combinations to take listed in the Undergraduate Catalog, almost every undergraduate student in our program will have a different route to graduation. The degree flow chart below is meant to provide an overall picture of what courses are required and the co- or pre-requisites for each course. It is strongly recommended that students make an appointment with their academic advisor for questions regarding degree planning.

Elective Course Options

All mechanical engineering students choose elective courses in addition to their required courses. You will take courses that fulfill your Career Gateway Electives, as well as electives from Mathematics and/or Natural Sciences. All elective courses must be approved by the Department of Mechanical Engineering before enrolling in them.

The mechanical engineering curriculum includes 12 hours of Career Gateway Electives (CGEs), which give students the ability to tailor their curriculum to meet their career goals.

Career Gateway Elective Options

  • Mechanical engineering or related field: Students interested in pursuing a career in mechanical engineering, an ME-related field or attending graduate school in ME should consider using their Career Gateway Electives to build depth in a particular area of ME by selecting one of the Bridges to the Future Certificate Programs.
  • Crossing traditional career boundaries: For those students whose interests cross traditional boundaries, students should consider selecting Career Gateway Electives from more than one Bridges to the Future Certificate Programs or selecting other upper division ME technical electives. Students should discuss course options with an undergraduate advisor.
  • : Students whose ultimate career goals lie outside of Engineering may wish to consider one of the non-Engineering strands.
  • Design your own career gateway plan: For students who don't fit into any of the above categories, the ME degree provides the flexibility for students to design their own Career Gateway plan. Approved CGEs for this option include other upper-division courses in ME, or in other engineering departments, or approved upper-division courses in Natural Sciences, Architecture and Business or Economics, or any upper-division course in another college or department that is flagged.

What should I do in order to change career to web development or software development for a mechanical engineering student with M.S degree? - Quora


Those are built and designed by military contractors like Boeing or McDonnel-Douglas.
An electrical engineering degree will get you in the door. Maybe a mechanical. Aeronautical, of course, but that's a far less common degree than you would think. In fact, such a degree is so career limiting that I would advise against it.

Best career for a mechanical enginer with MBA Degree? | Yahoo Answers

I got my MBA in 2000. One guy in the class had a chemical engineering degree and had about 5 years work experience offshore and with oil companies. (i don't know exactly what he was doing)
Energy companies were fighting over him. He took a job in Houston with Exxon Mobile starting around $90,000. (at the time that was an excellent starting salary) They send you through an 18 month training program working in every aspect of the business. I don't know what specific area he is working in now. I'm sure they could use him anywhere.
I assume he is making a whole lot more after the initial …
