The University of Texas at Tyler

The University of Texas at Tyler Department of Mechanical Engineering provides a student-focused, hands-on approach to engineering education, producing graduates who are highly sought after by employers and graduate schools across the nation.

Mechanical engineers represent one of the broadest of engineering disciplines, engaging in a variety of industrial and business operations, from large corporations and government organizations to small consulting firms.

As a UT Tyler mechanical engineering graduate you will be well equipped to work in areas of high demand, such as computer-aided design and analysis, thermal and fluid systems, manufacturing processes and control, bioengineering and aerospace systems and instrumentation.

  • The bachelor of science degree program provides instruction in both mechanical engineering theory and practice through a combination of classroom instruction and hands-on lab experiences.
  • The UT Tyler master of science degree program in mechanical engineering is broad-based, allowing students to develop expertise in a number of areas, including design, thermal/fluid sciences, solid mechanics and mechanical control and instrumentation.

At UT Tyler you will learn from a faculty of mechanical engineering experts who are devoted to student success and involve both undergraduates and graduates in research, conducted in state-of-the-art facilities.

You also will gain valuable experiences through membership in student chapters of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME); the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE); and the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE).

Marketable Skills

Students exit from any degree program with a variety of skills. Marketable skills are those valued by employers that can be applied in a variety of work settings, including interpersonal, cognitive, and applied skill areas. These skills can be either primary or complementary to a major and are acquired by students through education, including curricular, co-curricular, and other non-classroom activities (Texas High Education Coordinating Board, 2015).
