Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering

Laboratory courses and humanities and social science electives are found throughout the curriculum. The laboratory and application courses provide opportunity for development of student creativity, use of design methodology and other aspects of engineering design.

The entire curriculum serves as preparation for the industrial design project where teams of students are assigned to work on realistic engineering problems supplied by industrial sponsors. This brief internship gives new mechanical engineering graduates the experience and confidence to move quickly into productive and satisfying careers.

Because of the broad and fundamental nature of the curriculum, mechanical engineering provides an excellent background for careers in such fields as law, medicine, social services, urban design and business management in addition to traditional engineering professions.

We also offer a concurrent Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering and Master of Business Administration.

Everything you will need to know about the application and admissions process can be found on K-State's Office of Recruitment and Admissions website, including tuition, scholarshipfinancial aid, and housing.
