The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers both a thesis option and a non-thesis option leading to the M.S. degree. Areas of study in Mechanical Engineering include: Biomechanics and Biomaterials: biomechanics of human motion, biomaterials, orthopedic biomechanics and biomedical product design, transport phenomena, and drug delivery. Computational Mechanics and Mathematics of Computations: computational mechanics, finite element analysis, finite element methods and software. Thermal-Fluid Systems and Heat Transfer: energy and thermal-power system design, heat transfer and computational fluid dynamics. Mechanical Design, Manufacturing, and Microprocessor Applications: computer-aided mechanical design, continuum mechanics, computer-integrated manufacturing, computational mechanics, finite element analysis, machine stress analysis, microcomputer applications, and automatic control systems. Mission: The broad discipline of mechanical engineering enables students to have productive and rewarding careers, and to develop and improve new technologies in both traditional an emerging fields. Mechanical engineers apply fundamental principles to develop, design, manufacture, and test machines and other mechanical devices. Such devices include but are not limited to power-producing machines as well as power-consuming machines. Mechanical engineers are employed in diverse areas including but not limited to: the energy and power industries, the automotive and aerospace industries, and industrial manufacturing. Mechanical Engineering graduates also have careers in medicine and medical device development, patent law, engineering and corporate management, forensic engineering, and engineering sales. The mission of the Mechanical Engineering Department is to provide our students with a high quality education, to generate and apply knowledge, and to serve both society and the engineering profession. In support of our mission, upon graduation our graduate students will be: capable of performing research at the highest possible level and contribute valuable advances to their chosen areas of specialization; enthusiastic and have a strong desire to instruct young engineers in their chosen areas of specialization; and qualified to work at the most prestigious research institutions and universities in the world.
