Capstone Jr/Sr Design Clinic Series
Our program and student success is driven by the two-year design clinic program which offers students the opportunity to work on real-world engineering problems with projects sponsored by industries, government agencies, and national laboratories. The design projects span a wide range of interests and topics including robotics, auto-mechanics, prosthetics, and aerospace engineering.
Our ME faculty specialize in subject areas including Design, Fluids, Solid Mechanics, Controls, and Energetics. Faculty conduct state of the art research in their respective specialization, which translates to the classroom as application driven coursework.
Our department appreciates and values continued interactions with our alumni and friends. If you want to visit us, please feel free to contact the department staff to schedule a tour or a visit. Also if you would like to donate to the department you can do so here: Donate to Mechanical Engineering
