Mission Statement

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 learning:

  • 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.
