How do we make the field of engineering more diverse?
We aim to give students a balance of intellectual and practical experiences that enable them to address a variety of societal needs, and prepares students for entry-level work as mechanical engineers or for graduate study in engineering.
Our goal is to align academic course work with research to prepare scholars in specialized areas within the field. Areas of specialization include automatic controls, energy systems, fluid mechanics, design, and more.
