Mechanical and Materials Engineering

The domain of mechanical engineers is truly vast because they are needed wherever machines are, and at every stage of design, manufacturing, construction and research. In this program you will study basic engineering courses as well as practical courses in machine design, robotics and manufacturing methods.

Hands-on design is integral to this program. You may be involved in designing artificial joints, or even spacecraft, depending on your specialization.

If you choose the Materials option, you’ll study the exciting developments in materials and nanotechnology.

Areas of specialization include aerospace, mechatronics, biomechanical, manufacturing, materials, and thermofluids.
