Bachelor's student standing in front of equipment

At Tufts, you'll work with your peers and renowned faculty from across the university to learn the foundations of mechanical engineering, as well as interdisciplinary approaches to problem solving and experiments.

Grounded in interdisciplinary education and research, our students collaborate closely with faculty and peers in project-based work. Tufts provides students with the tools to cultivate their passions academically and professionally in a dynamic and supportive environment. Deeply immersed in both engineering technical work and the liberal arts, Tufts engineers are nimble and adaptable both inside and outside the classroom.

Tufts sets students up for success. Working closely with both faculty members and the Career Center, Tufts students acquire internships and career opportunities in various sectors and locations. A tech hub, Boston is a progressive city known across the globe for its academic and professional opportunity. About 80% of Tufts engineering majors complete at least one internship, and 60% conduct research in their four years here.

We offer two undergraduate programs of study: a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (BSME), and a Bachelor of Science in Human Factors Engineering (BSHFE). The Human Factors program has two parallel tracks: one for students in the School of Engineering and the other for students in the School of Arts and Sciences. A variety of minor and dual-major programs are also available. The department administers two minors in Engineering Education and Music Engineering.
