Why Tufts?

The new Science and Engineering Complex, where the Department of Mechanical Engineering is housed.

On the cutting edge

From nano electro-mechanical systems to the ergonomics of medical devices, mechanical engineers educated at Tufts create and implement systems in motion. At Tufts, you’ll earn a student-centered education at a top-notch research university, with small classes and cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research led by innovative faculty who are here to help you succeed.

Interdisciplinary education

Grounded in interdisciplinary education and research, our students collaborate closely with faculty and peers in project-based work. Tufts engineering provides students with the tools to cultivate their passions academically and professionally in a dynamic and supportive environment.

Collaborative research

Mechanical engineering is a rich and versatile profession that encompasses invention, analysis, and manufacture of mechanical components and systems. Multidisciplinary learning is vital to understanding engineering issues in the context of the larger world. Our flexible engineering program challenges traditional curriculum restrictions by allowing engineers to choose a second major or a minor from the School of Engineering or the School of Arts & Sciences.

State-of-the-art facilities

Tufts School of Engineering is constantly working to ensure that our students have access to the best equipment and facilities available. The Department of Mechanical Engineering is housed in the new Science & Engineering Complex, a collaborative learning and lab space designed for interdisciplinary research and innovation.
