Why MAME/SIU? | Mechanical Engineering and Energy Processes | SIU


Our program gives you the opportunity to achieve your goals and to play a significant role in being involved in every major manufacturing industry, scientific organization, medical industry and other areas.  Here you will learn to identify and solve problems that can make society more safe and better.

A good way to tell whether you might be a great mechanical engineer is taking a moment to think back to your childhood, or just the last few years.  Did you like to take things apart just to see how they worked and then see if you could it back together without getting into trouble? Or just like to tinker with things to see if there is better way for it to work? If so, your first interest should be here with the School of Mechanical, Aerospace, and Materials Engineering.

At SIU Carbondale, our internationally recognized faculty believe that hands-on and experiential work opportunities is a major component of your success.
