At Saint Louis University’s Parks College of Engineering, Aviation and Technology, we have developed an innovative mechanical engineering curriculum that provides hands-on experiences complementing theoretical knowledge. Our students work with fluids, thermal, material, structural testing, mechatronics and robotics equipment, which provides an excellent opportunity to integrate theory with real-world applications.

Most mechanical engineering programs provide research and project opportunities, but our first-year students actively participate: turning wrenches, running experiments, analyzing and publishing their work. They don’t have to wait until their junior year to get near the equipment, and they don’t have to wait until their senior year to be in positions of leadership.

With easy access to a sophisticated computer-aided design laboratory, a structures laboratory and more, our graduates gain invaluable experience that helps launch their career and set them on a trajectory to shape our world and beyond.
