Interested in Graduate Studies?
The Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering has concentrated its research in four general fields which are recognized by the Engineering Profession as components of Mechanical Engineering. Areas of study include:
- Biomechanical Engineering: Biomechanical device development and testing, computer assisted surgery, motion analysis, occupational biomechanics/ergonomics, spine biomechanics and tissue engineering.
- Energy and Fluid Systems: Alternative energy, fuel cells, combustion, computational and experimental fluid dynamics, explosion physics and prevention, gas turbine, heat transfer, low speed fluid flow, solar calorimetry, thermal hazards, thermographics and turbulence.
- Manufacturing and Dynamic Systems: Automatic controls, design optimization, manufacturing analysis, MEMS, metal processing, nanosize mechanical devices, noise and vibration control, rapid laminated tooling, robotics, structural and multidisciplinary systems design, system dynamics, machine condition monitoring..
- Materials Engineering: Ceramics and polymers, electrochemistry and biomaterials, materials characterization, materials processing and nuclear materials.
