Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
The Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Program offers both Ph.D. and M.S. degrees. Research within the department advances design in diverse fields such as manufacturing, micro- and nano-technology, vehicles, biomechanics, aerostructures, sensors, controls, mechatronics, combustion, and energy systems. Graduate student researchers acquire skills to address both fundamental issues in these areas and to design complex, multi-component systems. The highly collaborative environment fosters multidisciplinary research while drawing on the study of mechanical engineering, mathematics, electrical engineering, materials science, biology, and nanotechnology. Students graduate with the qualitative and quantitative skills necessary for professional research and teaching in mechanical and aeronautical engineering.
