a. leon linton department of mechanical engineering

Mechanical engineers design, develop, research, and test all types of machines and mechanical systems. They apply their expertise in the buildings where we live and work, in the factories that produce machines and consumer products, and in creating the products themselves. At LTU, you will study a diverse range of topics from acoustics and energy transmission to stress analysis, thermo fluids, and hydraulics. You’ll get plenty of hands-on experience working with your professors on industry-sponsored projects in state-of-the-art laboratories. Being one of the most versatile engineering degrees, mechanical engineering can prepare you to enter a wide spectrum of industries, such as automotive, aeronautics, aerospace, healthcare, and defense.
