Student Opportunities in Mechanical Engineering

‌At SVSU, classroom learning is only part of a student's education. Experiencing real life situations, developing critical thinking skills, leadership, sharing and creating knowledge, and working in teams that compete in state and national competitions are part of what it means to experience mechanical engineering first hand. These experiences, through internship and co-op opportunities, student clubs and organizations, and research opportunities give our students an advantage before they enter the workplace.
