About Us


Mechanical engineering is essential to the proper design and manufacture of nearly every physical product or device in our modern world. 

Mechanical engineers work with material properties, understand the nature of forces, project the flow of heat and fluids, and design products to improve people's lives. Mechanical engineers work in design and analysis, product development, teaching and research; they even become high-level managers such as the CEOs of IBM, Hewlett Packard, and Chrysler. In a broad sense, mechanical engineers are problem-solvers. An education from Santa Clara University prepares our students to tackle challenging problems, making a positive impact on society.
