Ohio State now confers the fourth greatest number of undergraduate degrees in mechanical engineering of any university in the United States. As one alumnus remarked, "The department's faculty are passionate about teaching theory and how to apply it to solve problems and develop solutions through relevant lab experiences, capstone design and homework. My career has benefited significantly from learning how to break down complex problems to first principles and develop optimal solutions across a range of technologies."
