What is an associate degree in mechanical engineering? This program combines classroom instruction and practical application with research and project-based learning. Students may focus on higher mathematics, physics, chemistry, engineering, and drafting in order to learn more about machine function and other mechanical principles. General studies, including languages, written and oral communication, and social sciences may also be included for completion of this degree program. Students can gain proficiency in mechanical design and operation as well as interpretation of manufacturing and product development.

Along with specific mechanical engineering skills, students may benefit from this degree program by strengthening critical thinking, data analysis, and problem-solving abilities. These skills are highly desirable in manufacturing, engineering, and other industries.

The need for people who are educated in mechanical engineering has led to colleges and universities around the world offering associate’s degrees in this field. Costs can vary quite a bit based on institution and location. Students should contact the admissions office to learn more about expenses.

With a mechanical engineering associate’s degree, students can find work in a number of industries. Educated people are needed in product or machine design, as engineering technicians, and even for drafting or CAD operation. Both the private and private sectors have positions for apprentices and entry-level employees. Some students may prefer to earn a higher degree to be better qualified for a position with higher potential and more responsibility.

Full-time, part-time, and online classes allow students flexibility in balancing school with other responsibilities.
