The undergraduate program in mechanical engineering was established in 1908, and the master of science and doctoral programs were added in 1961 and 1984, respectively.
Approximately 300 undergraduate students are majoring in mechanical engineering. About 60 percent of the junior and seniors are enrolled in the Co-operative Education Program. Total graduate enrollment is about 40 students.
The educational and research programs of the department are directed by 16 full-time regular faculty, who are assisted by about 10 active emeriti, adjunct and research professors. Four of the 16 full-time regular mechanical engineering faculty are fellows of ASME, and another is a fellow of ASM International. Still others have received various national and international recognition.
The department offers a bachelor of science degree in mechanical engineering. The department also offers programs leading to master of science and doctor of philosophy degrees in mechanical engineering.
