Faculty and students in the MIT Department of Mechanical Engineering share an interest in innovation, creativity and advanced professional study. Mechanical engineering is perhaps the broadest and most versatile of the engineering disciplines, as reflected in this sampling of current departmental activities:
The Mechanical Engineering Department (Course 2) is more closely associated with manufacturing and operations than any other engineering department. It has historically focused on these areas of study, and has developed many courses of special interest to LGO students.
Through the support of LGO industry partners who wish to invest in future leaders from mechanical engineering, LGO students enrolled in the Department of Mechanical Engineering will receive a generous fellowship. For the most current information on the LGO fellowship, visit our program costs page.
Popular mechanical engineering courses among LGO students include:
LGO students in this program must choose one of four tracks:
A comprehensive product realization curriculum from processes and control to factory systems, supply chains and product design. Courses for this track include:
* 2.875J/ESD.875J - Mechanical Assemblies: Their Design, Manufacture, and Role in Product Development can be used as either Design or Manufacturing Subject for ME but not for both.
Understand energy generation and utilization (especially in manufacturing) from a fundamental technology viewpoint, and manufacturing sustainability from a material and energy resource perspective. Courses for this track include:
Develop an understanding of both cellular and organ level problems, and related instrumentation technologies and medical device design. Courses for this track include:
A broad curriculum from naval architecture, ship design and propulsion systems to manufacturing and supply chains. Courses for this track include:

Please note: If you are applying to LGO through the Department of Mechanical Engineering, contact Joan Kravit (email@example.com) if you also want to be considered for the S.M. program in mechanical engineering if you are not admitted to LGO.
Graduates of the MIT LGO program receive two degrees in two years: either an MBA or a Master of Science in Management degree from MIT Sloan School of Management, and a Master of Science degree from one of seven participating departments in the School of Engineering.
The new Ocean Engineering Systems Management track aims to train leaders in the shipping industry.
