Welcome to the Department of Mechanical Engineering
Engineering masterpieces of the future will require mechanical engineers to reach beyond the traditional knowledge of the field. To be truly innovative, they will need to integrate aspects of other disciplines into their education, using nanomaterials, rapid prototyping, molecular rotors, biomechanic interfaces, and more. Building on the core disciplines of mechanical engineering, our department focuses on the following strategic areas: design, nano/microscience technology, biosystems and health, energy and sustainability, and multiscale simulation.
The department offers programs at both the undergraduate and graduate (both PhD and MS degree) levels that provide solid foundations for careers in industry, research, and academia. Here you’ll find all of the advantages of a large university, where world-renowned professors perform state-of-the-art research, while maintaining small class sizes that enable personal attention from faculty.
Current research areas include:
- Virtual design and manufacturing
- Computational solid and fluid mechanics
- Composite materials
- Nondestructive materials characterization and structural reliability
