Inventors. Problem solvers. Designers.
Mechanical engineers are all of those things. And our hands-on approach at UToledo lets students refine their skills through co-ops and design projects with real clients.
Mechanical engineers are curious about how things work. They are creative problem solvers who design, develop and improve products we use every day. If you want to make a positive difference in people’s lives, this is a great career.
Mechanical engineering is the broadest field of engineering. It touches every other branch. Mechanical engineers design everything from prosthetic limbs and cancer treatments to cutting-edge, alternative energy systems like offshore wind turbines.
The University of Toledo has one of the best engineering schools in the country. Our accredited programs focus on hands-on learning and practical experience.
Thanks to our unique, mandatory co-op program, mechanical engineering students graduate with a year of real-work experience and often with full-time job offers.

The University of Toledo is one of eight programs in the U.S. to require co-op experiences for all engineering undergraduates. We have an entire staff at our Career Development Center dedicated to helping students find co-ops and hone their professional skills for interviews. Students spend three semesters in the field. They have been placed in 40 states and 34 countries.
