An Interdisciplinary Approach
Mizzou’s large campus gives engineering faculty and students the opportunity to work with people from a diverse range of disciplines.
This interdisciplinary approach is reflected in engineering classrooms, and through undergraduate research and student teams and organizations, students learn the importance of communicating across disciplines, a valuable skill they can take with them as they begin careers.

What do mechanical & aerospace engineers do?
Mechanical engineers research, design, develop, manufacture, and test tools, engines, machines, and other mechanical devices. Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest engineering disciplines. Engineers in this discipline work on power-producing machines such as electric generators, internal combustion engines, and steam and gas turbines. They also work on power-using machines such as refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment, machine tools, material handling systems, elevators and escalators, industrial production equipment, and robots used in manufacturing. Mechanical engineers also design tools that other engineers need for their work. In addition, mechanical engineers work in manufacturing or agriculture production, maintenance, or technical sales; many become administrators or managers.
