Stress all of your experience within engineering outside of just what you have learned in the classroom. Talk about any work experience you have had so far. Also bring up any clubs, activities, or projects that relate to engineering or management/business/communication skills.

On your resume, it's smart to include a section of tools and equipment that you are proficient with. Welding is a HUGE one. It shows you're not afraid to get hands on and a little dirty. I've had over two dozen interviews for jobs and internships, and when they see my experience with torch work and welding they always bring it up. Theory is nice, but as a mechanical engineer hands on experience will always win.
