Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering students at Mizzou have the unique opportunity to enhance their research experience via Undergraduate Research, where the students work on independent projects under the supervision of the world-class faculty. They will also be exposed to the professional responsibilities of engineers, including ethics and the societal impacts of engineering decisions.
Mechanical and Aerospace engineering students are prepared for the growing industry by talented and dedicated faculty focused on cutting-edge research and teaching. Freshmen and sophomores focus on general education and engineering fundamentals. Junior year students concentrate on courses in mechanical engineering topics, including bioengineering, system design, materials, manufacturing and energy systems controls. Senior year consists primarily of electives, allowing the students to develop an individual study program. The senior experience culminates with the capstone design project, a real-life design project completed jointly with practicing engineers from industry and government organizations.
