Mechanical Engineering is one of the oldest and broadest engineering disciplines. In the more traditional sense, Mechanical Engineering employs principles of physics and chemistry and knowledge from the fields of mathematics, mechanics and materials science for the analysis, design, manufacturing and maintenance of mechanical systems. Again, in the traditional sense, a Mechanical Engineer would be the expert in the production and usage of heat and mechanical power which are critical in the design, production and operation of tools, components and machines used in manufacturing durable goods and in using advanced technologies for the benefit of society.

In recent years, the discipline of Mechanical Engineering has taken on an expansive, and critical role in the advancement of transformative new technologies such as the information-, bio-, nano-technologies and MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems). It is clearly a new and exciting world out there. We are delighted to be at the forefront of acquiring new knowledge through cutting edge research in this new and expansive field of Mechanical Engineering. As reflected in their posted profiles and accomplishments, our faculty are recognized nationally and internationally for their research and discoveries. Many of them are Fellows of engineering societies and recipients of prestigious research awards granted for excellence by agencies such as the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health.
