Mechanical engineering (BSE)

A degree in Mechanical engineering from Arizona State University comes with baked-in opportunities for solving real and timely engineering problems. From analyzing air pollution to dissecting mechanical and thermal systems, discovering new ways to operate in world processes.

Why mechanical engineering?

Interested in agriculture, medicine, automotive sports or semiconductor modeling? Looking to help solve issues with climate change? All have a basis in mechanical engineering. Students in the undergraduate program get to cultivate an understanding behind a diverse range of operations while developing the skills needed to produce hands-on results for their community and abroad.

Choosing the energy and environment concentration lets students focus on renewable energy, air pollution and sustainability. The computational mechanics concentration prepares students for numerical simulation, visualization and high-performance computing of modern mechanical and thermal systems. See below for links to more in-depth course outlines.

Financial Aid
ASU has many financial aid options. Almost everyone, regardless of income, can qualify for some form of financial aid. In fact, more than 70 percent of all ASU students receive some form of financial assistance every year.

Degree options

Students may choose one of two concentrations: computational mechanics or energy and environment. A concentration is not required.

Below are the major maps and technical electives for each degree option. A major map outlines a major’s official requirements, elective and required courses, and optimal course sequencing to help students stay on the right track to graduation.
