Mechanical Engineering

Department of Mechanical Engineering


Mechanical Engineering applies the principles of solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, material science, dynamics and control to the analysis and design of machines and systems of all types. In applying this technical knowledge, the mechanical engineer must consider economic constraints and the social and ecological implications of solutions imposed. The mechanical engineering curriculum offers the student an opportunity to pursue educational objectives within the framework of this broad theme.
