The Bradley Advantage

As a student in Bradley’s mechanical engineering program, you discover why mechanical engineering is one of the most versatile engineering backgrounds. You learn how to use technology to solve issues in areas such as energy, robotics, transportation and medicine. You apply classroom knowledge to a yearlong senior project with professional implications. The standard mechanical engineering program is a generalist degree; however, you can specialize in energy or biomedical concentrations if you want a more-focused experience. You also can stay at Bradley for a graduate degree in the field. U.S. News and World Report consistently ranks Bradley’s engineering programs among the nation’s best.
