University’s Feedback: Why Study Mechanical Engineering at WSU?
In our classrooms and laboratories, future engineers study Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering (MME) face-to-face with MME’s world-class faculty.
Educational programs incorporate industry-sponsored, real-world design problems, resulting in working prototypes designed and constructed by interdisciplinary teams of student engineers.
The School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering has an active research faculty, conducting research over a wide range of topics. Students have the opportunity to work on leading-edge research, presenting and publishing research results along with our research faculty.
Mechanical engineering, in combining a variety of disciplines like physics and materials science, is concerned with the development, application and management of machines.
With the planning and development of machines themselves, mechanical engineers often work on issues related to energy, which include low-cost energy conversion from natural resources and managing energy systems, machines, and resources.
Outside of energy, mechanical engineers also deal with the design and production of automated machines, as well as the processing of materials into the commercial and industrial products of tomorrow.
