Mechanical Engineering & Technology

About Us

The Department of Mechanical Engineering & Technology is committed to providing a quality, hands-on education. In each of our programs, you’ll spend time in both labs and the classroom. Our classes are taught by faculty members with industry experience in research and production. Our faculty work with you to help you develop real-life problem-solving skills. We understand engineering as a collaborative process, so our instructors have designed the classroom experience to reinforce the importance of collaboration in addition to individual achievement.

Lab Spaces

The best engineering education consists of a balance between in-depth classroom explanation and hands-on laboratory experience. Our department has all the up-to-date engineering gear necessary to support our programs. We use a wind tunnel, a digital signals processing and communications lab, a rapid prototyper, an entire materials testing laboratory, a robotics lab, an integrated circuits lab, and a state-of-the-art power lab—among others. We are committed to using our laboratories to reinforce the concepts taught in the classroom.
