Welcome to the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering

The Mechanical and Materials Engineering program graduates skilled leaders and innovators who are ready to take on the challenges of modern day mechanical engineering. Mechanical engineers are needed wherever machines are, and have an impact at every stage of research, design, manufacturing and construction. Our program exposes students to basic engineering courses and practical courses in machine design and manufacturing methods. Hands-on design is integral to this program. Students may focus on the development of new materials and technologies for a broad range of applications including power generation, manufacturing, medical devices and transportation. Areas of specialization include aerospace, mechatronics, biomechanical, manufacturing, materials and thermofluids.
