Mechanical Engineering is very broad in scope and is pertinent to a variety of engineering activities and products, such as transportation vehicles, energy generation, machine mechanisms, manufacturing systems, structures, and processing plants. The Mechanical Engineering program provides a solid foundation for work in all of these fields. The flexible and modern curricula cover contemporary technology as well as the fundamentals for future technologies and are designed to prepare students for employment in industry and advanced studies. Modern, well-equipped research laboratories support the curricula. These laboratory facilities include computer-aided design and engineering, manufacturing, materials science and processing, rapid prototyping, rehabilitation engineering, robotics, solid mechanics, and thermal and fluid systems.
The mission of the Mechanical Engineering Department is to provide a high quality, practice-oriented, design-focused curriculum that prepares students for both leadership roles in industry and advanced graduate studies.
