We offer three undergraduate programs that will give you the skills you need to pursue a professional career in mechanical engineering.
Why choose Northern Arizona University? We are undergraduate-focused, our class size averages about 40, our classes are all taught by regular faculty, and you can be confident of receiving a very good education in accredited programs that are currently ranked in the top 25% by U.S. News and World Report for engineering colleges whose highest degree is a masters degree. We are learner-centered, our facilities and labs are current and student-oriented, our caring faculty are accessible to students, and our tuition is fairly low and is guaranteed for 4 years. You will be living and learning in a beautiful natural setting of a mountainside forest, you will have an abundance of learning assistance available to help you be successful in these relatively challenging programs, and your education features the Design4Practice hands-on program that won Boeing Company's outstanding educator award in 1999.
