Mechanical and Materials Engineering

As the oldest engineering discipline that has the broadest reach in terms of application, mechanical engineering touches every aspect of life from medical devices, computers, and athletic equipment to automobile engines, electric power plants, and the very machines that create these innovations.

Our Programs

Mechanical and materials science influence virtually every aspect of human life. Our department, supports research and education in a wide range of modern technologies including design, dynamics, controls, materials, intelligent systems, advanced mechanical systems, applied mechanics and thermal systems engineering.

Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering students gain knowledge to design, manufacture, and operate machines and mechanical systems that work in a safe and efficient fashion. Students learn fundamental principles of force, energy, and motion and apply theories to develop everything from simple devices to complex systems.

Mechanical Engineering Technology

Mechanical engineering technology students gain knowledge in the hardware- and computer-oriented aspects of mechanical design, manufacturing, and energy systems. Students receive a fundamental and applicable foundation with emphasis on realistic, technical problem-solving projects involving mechanical systems.

Materials Science and Engineering

Materials science and engineering students gain knowledge of how materials work, leading to the creation of new materials for new applications as well as the further development of existing materials to improve performance.

Industrial & Systems Engineering

Industrial and systems engineering students gain knowledge to innovate and improve systems, solve complex problems and incorporate human interaction within a system. Focus areas include data analytics, healthcare systems, and Industry 4.0/5.0.

Our Faculty

All of our faculty members have extensive and impressive research backgrounds, working closely with students in their research activities. The department is home to several internationally recognized research activities in structural dynamics, bio-mechanics, vibro-acoustics, gear dynamics, computational mechanics, nanotechnology, intelligent autonomous systems, computational fluid dynamics, robotics and many more.
