MECHANICAL ENGINEERING Mechanical engineers use art and science to create products of mechanical and thermal nature. Some of those products include automobiles, aircrafts. Mechanical engineers use Computer Aided Drafting for many designs. The tools of these engineers are mathematics, physics, common sense and experience. The MEG department at UNLV has a faculty of 15, a total of 17 research facilities, over 200 undergraduate students and around 100 graduate students. The department offers Bachelors, Masters and Doctorate degrees in mechanical engineering. The mechanical engineering department is ever expanding with new research facilities and interaction with local high schools such as Palo Verde and Gorman. Mechanical engineering students work on many projects such as human powered vehicles, robot soccer and others. The department also has many active research centers such as the Center for Energy, Center for
