The Mechanical Engineering faculty is committed to providing the best undergraduate mechanical engineering education possible. We strive to nurture the intellectual, professional and personal development of our students; to continuously improve the curriculum, to be professionally current, and to maintain state-of-the-art facilities for teaching and learning.

We seek to prepare students for professional practice with a solid, scientifically-grounded foundation in the major topics of mechanical engineering: mechanics, mechanical design, dynamics, control, fluid mechanics, thermal science and materials science.
