The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering offers a combination of coursework, laboratory and design experiences to prepare you for a career in mechanical or aerospace engineering. Our programs offer students diverse and multidimensional education that addresses fundamental understanding of the underlying mathematics, sciences, and engineering, design methodologies, use of modern simulation and design tools and extensive laboratories for undergraduate and graduate instruction and research. We offer programs leading to a Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, Doctor of Philosophy in engineering (mechanical), and a Bachelor of Science, and Master of Science in engineering (aerospace). Mechanical and aerospace engineering is a dynamic and continually evolving profession. Mechanical engineers design, build and maintain the products and processes that define industrial and post-industrial societies.
