Mechanical Engineers apply the principles of mechanics and energy to the design of machines and devices. They must be able to control mechanical systems and usually work with other professionals in designing these systems. Automobiles, engines, heating and air-conditioning system, gas and steam turbines, air and space vehicles, trains, ships, servomechanisms, transmission mechanisms, machine tools, material handling systems, elevators and escalators, and robots used in industry are a few of the systems and devices requiring mechanical engineering knowledge.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers dynamic educational programs and a faculty poised to deliver quality engineering education. The department also offers studies leading to the Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, Master of Engineering and the Ph.D. The Master of Engineering and Ph.D. programs also include interdisciplinary degrees in Atmospheric Sciences and Materials Sciences.
