Mechanical Engineering's design courses emphasize practical mechanical engineering systems, devices and components. Students develop skills in project planning, team dynamics, problem identification and conceptual design and evaluation.
Scholarships in variable amounts are available to Mechanical Engineering undergraduate students and to Engineering General Resources (EGR) undergraduate students expecting to be admitted to the ME department for the term of the scholarship. Many awards are based on academic merit and not on financial need. Visit Scholarships@UW-Madison to find and apply for scholarships.
Opportunities are available to undergraduates to prepare for advanced studies in engineering and other fields.
Undergraduate research fellowships
