Welcome to UD's Department of Mechanical Engineering
Our graduates are prepared to face the challenges they will encounter – no matter which 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:
The Department hosts the Center for Fuel Cells and Batteries and the Center for Biomechanical Engineering Research. We also have strong ties with several strategic campus-wide institutions such as the Center for Composite Materials, the Center for Carbon-free Power Integration, the Delaware Energy Institute, the Delaware Rehabilitation Institute, the Delaware Biotechnology Institute, and the Delaware Environmental Institute. Campus-wide initiatives in advanced manufacturing include the establishment of two National Networks for Manufacturing Innovation, RAPID and NIIMBL. All centers and institutes offer opportunities for collaborative research.
