The Bradley Advantage

As a student in Bradley’s mechanical engineering program, you’ll learn how to use technology to solve real problems in areas such as energy, robotics, transportation and medicine. You’ll apply classroom knowledge to a yearlong senior project with professional implications. The standard mechanical engineering program is a generalist degree; however, you can specialize in energy or biomedical concentrations if you want a more-focused experience. You also can stay at Bradley for a graduate degree in the field. Whatever path you choose, it will be recognized in the professional world, as U.S. News and World Report consistently ranks Bradley’s engineering programs among the nation’s best.

Successful Outcomes

Bradley’s mechanical engineering graduate program successfully prepares you to advance your career or to pursue a doctorate. In recent years, all Bradley mechanical engineering students found employment or started doctoral courses within six months of graduation. They’re working at places such as CNH Industrial, General Motors, the U.S. Air Force and Komatsu America Corp.
