Global, green, and engaged. Our job is not finished until our ideas, our expertise and our people make a real and significant difference in the world. Join us in multidisciplinary research focusing on the most compelling scientific and technical challenges of our age. The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers four graduate programs; the Ph.D., a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (thesis or non-thesis), a Graduate Certificate in Composites Manufacturing and Engineering, and a Graduate Certificate in Composite Materials. While most incoming graduate students have a degree in mechanical engineering or other closely related fields, our graduate programs are also suitable for students with degrees in such areas as physics or mathematics.

Engineering Discovery Day
November 10, 2018
Presented by the sisters of the Nu Chapter of Alpha Omega Epsilon, UD’s engineering sorority.
Female high school sophomores, juniors and seniors are invited to attend Engineering Discovery Day.
Participants will learn about what engineering and computer science are, the major fields of engineering, and the ever-growing role women play in STEM fields. Additionally, participants will have the opportunity to become familiar with some of the students, faculty, and facilities of the College of Engineering at the University of Delaware.
The Design Studio is a 5,500 sq ft maker space on the first floor of Spencer Laboratory that includes space for fabrication, collaboration, and design validation. It is a community space that is open 24-7 for mechanical engineering students and their collaborators. Learn more about our design studio.
Students took first place in a national design competition for SimuCath, a device used in Healthcare Theatre. Find out more about our undergraduate program.
