The mission of the Department of Mechanical Engineering is to
graduate students with a sound basis for professional practice and a
career in lifelong learning. We do this through classroom
experiences, individual advising, undergraduate research
opportunities and open-ended, hands-on experiences.
Students master methods of solving challenging problems through
- The fundamental principles of mechanical
engineering and human factors
- How to discover new knowledge
- How to communicate these solutions to the
technical and non-technical community, and
- How to think like scientists and engineers,
developing opinions / designs and finding evidence
to support them.
