Mechanical Engineering Major

Mechanical engineering is one of the oldest and broadest of all engineering fields. 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.

The Grace College Engineering Department was launched in 2018 to help meet the growing demand for well-trained engineers in our region.  Grace College sits next door to Warsaw, Indiana, the “Orthopaedic Capital of the World.”  There exists not only a great number of orthopedic companies in the area, but a heavy concentration of manufacturing as a whole.

The Grace College mechanical engineering degree program was developed in close consultation with industry leaders to ensure the curriculum is relevant and sought-after by employers.  It is designed from a Christian perspective with practical application — the quality of internships for engineering majors at Grace College is second-to-none. (See “Internship Opportunities” below.)  Graduates will leave Grace ready to make meaningful contributions to manufacturers in a variety of industries and beyond.
