Mechanical Engineering Department

There's nothing like the "buzz" that comes from discovery and innovation. Just ask any of the undergraduate or graduate Mechanical Engineering students who are doing important research on a daily basis.

Undergraduates can capitalize on the discipline's diversity by adding one of four concentrations without having to make any special accommodation in their schedules. Graduate students join faculty weekly in a seminar series to network and learn from distinguished visitors. All students are assigned a faculty advisor who mentors them throughout their academic careers, and emerge ready for leadership in industry, government and academia.


Our faculty are active in a diverse range of applied and basic research areas. The following are a few of our current areas of research strength:

  • Acoustics and vibrations
  • Biomechanics
  • Computational Science and Engineering
  • Dynamics, Robotics, Systems, and Controls
  • Thermofluid Sciences, Energy and Sustainability
  • Materials
  • MEMS and Nanosciences
