Mechanical Engineering Major

A major in Mechanical Engineering at Grace College will explore the ins and outs of designing and building. Mechanical engineers create designs, build structures and evaluate performance of devices. Mechanical engineers deal with anything that moves — from large construction equipment to small nano-scale robots, and even the human body. As you consider an array of colleges with Mechanical Engineering majors near you in the midwest, be assured that when you find your way to Winona Lake, Indiana, you will discover a top college for Mechanical Engineering taught with a Christian worldview. A Grace College Mechanical Engineering degree will help you make workable connections between industry here in the “Orthopaedic Capital of the World,” and the design control process, preparing you to weigh questions and create conversation in a Christian college context. 

This program is for you if you are serious about creating an impact in a Mechanical Engineering career. With a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering, you will be required to get real-world experience ensuring you are equipped for jobs in development engineering, biomechanics, robotics, and countless other areas. 

Future Mechanical Engineer, the way forward is Grace.

Working as a co-op at a small orthopedic company in Warsaw this summer, I have gained such valuable real-world experience of engineering in the med-tech industry. I made initial contact with the company through a class project at Grace wherein we were asked to research and present a proposal. This summer, I have been given real responsibility – not just grunt work- and the opportunity to accomplish tasks needed by the company! Also, being in a smaller workplace setting, I can reach out and get involved in nearly every step in the process of orthopedics. I have worked directly with manufacturing, packaging, marketing, sales, management, CAD design, and with doctors themselves! I am very thankful for this co-op experience.
