500X330_ME_IntroEngineering has always been an in-demand field with a constant need for critical thinkers and problem solvers. In the mechanical engineering program you will learn the fundamentals of what it takes to be a great engineer. The program offers a wide array of learning opportunities from traditional classroom and laboratory settings to undergraduate research and engineering design oriented courses.

Mechanical engineering is one of the oldest, and by far the most popular, field of engineering today. As a mechanical engineer, you will apply physical science concepts to address real world problems. A degree in mechanical engineering is often considered to be the most flexible and adaptable to your specific interest. This program focuses on a broad scope of course work in small classes to ensure individual attention to each student by your professors.  This setting will not just teach the necessary engineering science, but give you the tools to succeed in whatever career path you choose. Tap into your potential at UST to begin addressing and solving the problems of today and the future.

This program is best if you want to earn two engineering degrees, one from UST and one from a partner school. After completing 3 years in the B.S. in Engineering Physics program at UST, you can complete your engineering degree at a partner school, then apply for a UST degree as well.

learn more about Engineering Physics

Engineering Physics is a relatively new field in engineering. If you have a strong interest in both engineering and physics, this program prepares you to design, develop and apply new solutions in engineering, from research and development to education, medicine, law and business. The program culminates with Capstone Engineering Design classes in the 4th year, where you’ll work in a small group on one project from idea to design to realization.
