Union College's nationally-ranked, ABET-accredited mechanical engineering program offers an exceptional engineering education within a liberal arts environment.

You will find an emphasis on close student-faculty interaction in small class settings, hands-on laboratory experience and exciting design-and-build projects, such as solar heat pumps, solid propellant rockets, aerosol generators, nanomaterials, robotic instruments, water filtration systems, aerogel windows and more.

Students build a strong core in engineering fundamentals, mathematics and basic science before progressing to more specialized areas of study. There are ample opportunities for disciplinary and interdisciplinary undergraduate research, and for participation in national collegiate design competitions, including SAE Aero, SAE Baja, ASME Human-Powered Vehicles and the Spaceport America Cup.
