Best Mechanical Engineering Colleges in Massachusetts for 2018

Rank School Name Location Description   Rating
1 Massachusetts Institute of Technology Cambridge, MA

Department of Mechanical Engineering

It’s no coincidence that MIT’s mascot is a beaver. The critter purposely was selected because of its "remarkable engineering and mechanical skill and its habits of industry." The prestigious institution has a variety of programs that are well regarded, but engineering is its soul. In fact, about 60 percent of MIT’s undergrads and 45 percent of grad students are enrolled in the School of Engineering. The distinguished scholars teaching in the mechanical engineering department are also cutting-edge researchers. From helping to bring clean water to rural India by designing a solar-powered desalination device to creating a humanoid robot for disaster and rescue missions, they use their knowledge to solve real-world problems. The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program gets interested students in on the action too; perhaps you’ll help design low-cost radio-frequency identification chips or figure out a better way to harness wind power. If creative problem-solving energizes you, MIT might be your ideal place.
