Mechanical engineering plays a role in nearly everything made by humans. From design to fabrication to final applications, mechanical engineers touch everything.
Our program balances theory, design and laboratory experience in the areas of thermal fluids, mechanics, dynamic systems, design and materials. We aim to help students develop into leaders in the field. Students are eligible to specialize in any one of the following areas of emphasis:
The master of science (MS) program provides a balance of advanced theory and practical knowledge necessary for either practice within the profession or advancement to a doctoral program.
The master of engineering (MEng) program prepares students for careers in professional practice through a flexible course selection and requires no thesis or project.
The PhD program prepares students for basic and applied research in mechanical engineering through multidisciplinary research areas reflective of the interests of ME faculty.
Recent doctoral graduate placements include: Caterpillar Inc., Universal Instruments, Corning Inc., General Electric Research, Apple, Electrolux.
