In MCE, we blend and bend the traditional disciplines of mechanical and civil engineering to tackle the most important problems facing our world by creating sustainable, autonomous, and resilient machines and infrastructure, and by tackling the fundamental scientific and technical enablers. Our hands-on undergraduate program is based on teamwork, problem solving, and mastering state-of-the-art laboratory/computational techniques to prepare students for leadership in industry, government labs, and academic research. Our PhD-focused graduate programs offer compelling research opportunities in the areas of systems engineering, mechanics and materials, and energy and thermal-fluid science, with a broad range of interdisciplinary applications and pressing societal imperatives from medicine to climate change to autonomy. Our world renowned faculty, passionate students, and skilled staff are committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive environment for learning and discovery.
