News

Our department continues to be a catalyst in transformation of our students. We provide knowledge through education for leadership in industry, business, academia, government and for the establishment of international recognition. We are forerunners in energy, mechanics, materials, aerospace, and biomedical research. Our research and education in parallel strengthens and enhances our undergraduate program. The enrollments in mechanical engineering has doubled since 2010. We are currently the largest program in the college.
