Degrees and Programs
Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
Mechanical engineering builds the physical systems and devices that define modern society — everything from air conditioning to automobiles, robots to power plants, artificial limbs to escalators.
One of the most versatile engineering fields, mechanical engineering plays a central role in many areas from the automotive and aerospace industries to robotics, electronics, automation and manufacturing.
Students in this program learn fundamental theory, modeling methods, hardware components, interfacing requirements, simulation and programming tools, and practical applications of mechatronics and robotics.
Our Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering program offers a balanced curriculum that emphasizes the principles behind designs and approaches, and we make computational and research experience an integral component of your studies.
