Original data was collected from Careerbridge and used along with existing information available through the registrar and careers office to provide a quantitative breakdown of the trends in Mechanical Engineering department enrollment, degrees awarded, and skills demanded of graduating alumni. These results are used to suggest that the number of MIT Mechanical Engineering graduates can increase by recognizing the existence of a type of engineer defined as the Systems Engineer. Systems Engineers are currently switching out of engineering into business, finance and consulting, and this can be corrected through a concentration in 2A similar to an existing program called the Gordon Engineering Leadership Program.The addition of a systems engineering concentration through the MIT Mechanical Engineering Alternative (course 2A) curriculum will be shown to have the potential to increase the number of engineering degrees in comparison to non-engineering ...
