Mechanical Engineering

Real-World Experience

Solve real-world problems through the senior design project. A recent senior project involved designing a solar electric and hot water heating system for a new facility being constructed at Denali National Park.

Gain Valuable Knowledge of Cold-Climate Engineering

Gain specialized skills and knowledge for working in the North. Our mechanical engineering program emphasizes cold-climate engineering throughout the curriculum. Employers in Alaska prefer mechanical engineering graduates from the state, particularly UAF, because of their cold-climate knowledge.

Cutting-edge Research

Take part in cutting-edge research such as the Alaska Space Grant Program, or engage in individual undergraduate research projects with funding widely available through URSA. Participate annually in rocket launches from Poker Flat, the only university owned and operated sounding rocket range in the world.
