Expert faculty and staff
All mechanical engineering courses are taught by a faculty member, many with extensive
research and industry experience.
Undergraduate students in the Mechanical Engineering program at OSU participate in
hands-on experiences with exciting projects, preparing them for careers after graduation.
Students who participate in competition teams (Baja Car, Formula One Car, ChemE Car,
Mercury Robotics, Speedfest), research projects or the required senior capstone project
are able to take theories learned in the classroom and apply them to real world situations. Engineering design is integrated throughout the curriculum with a strong emphasis
during the junior and senior years.
