George W. Laird Professor and Chair, Department of Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering is the broadest of the engineering disciplines giving students a wide range of opportunities; its strong technical foundation makes opportunities available in both practice and research as well as non-engineering fields such as business, law or medicine.

Our graduates are prepared to face the challenges they will encounter - no matter what path they choose.

  • Our undergraduate program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, and is flexible and responsive to students' needs.
  • Undergraduate students are encouraged to work directly with faculty in state-of-the-art research projects.
  • In Senior Design, students work in groups of four with a local company, solving design problems for their company sponsor.
  • The Department's graduate research program is recognized internationally and includes many cross-disciplinary interests. Specific areas of research focus include:

These research areas highlight the strength of the faculty and the wide range of possibilities.
