About Us

The Mechanical Engineering Department offers a tight-knit community. Our students have plenty of facetime with professors in classrooms and labs, and many pursue research projects one-on-one with faculty. Others choose to do an internship off-campus and get real-world industry experience.

There is a wide variety of coursework to choose from and many areas to specialize in, as well as co-curricular opportunities to match every interest. The Mechanical Engineering Department offers a supportive community of faculty, alumni and peers — it’s no wonder that our students are pursuing contests, fellowships and careers all over the world.
