ME + Business

If you’re intrigued by the challenge of taking a product from concept to marketplace, the Mechanical Engineering + Business track may be the right opportunity for you.

From product design to energy science, robotics to biomaterials, control systems to manufacturing, Mechanical Engineering (ME) encompasses a broad range of research areas that can be applied to a diverse group of industries. Your ME classes will lay the groundwork for you to develop meaningful technologies that can have a powerful impact on individual lives as well as our global society.

This coursework — paired with essential business classes in macroeconomics, accounting and marketing, among others — will prepare you to implement technical solutions to real-world problems in any type of enterprise. With opportunities for hands-on experience, research positions and internships, you’ll have all the tools needed to thrive in your future career as a technology leader and innovator.

A sample curriculum plan for the ME + Business program is shown below. Your own course of study will depend on your pre-college preparation, including AP course credits and other individual circumstances.
