The Walker Department of Mechanical Engineering offers a robust undergraduate program that teaches students the fundamentals of mechanical engineering, while training them to think creatively and work collaboratively. Texas Mechanical Engineering is consistently ranked among the top programs in the nation, and our graduates go on to found companies, design products and processes, and develop solutions that improve lives around the world.



The UT Austin Office of Admissions is responsible for the admission of undergraduate students to the university. Future students may communicate with admissions counselors through visit event registration, academics, financial aid, and housing. Although the UT Austin Office of Admissions handles the decision-making process, we are more than happy to meet with you in our department to give you more information about our program and give you a brief tour of our facilities.
