Students practice building car parts in the Armour Garage

The Department of Mechanical, Materials, and Aerospace Engineering (MMAE) offers students the opportunity to explore the design and manufacture of machines, aircraft, vehicles beyond the earth's atmosphere, and the structure and properties of engineering materials.

Our bachelor’s degree programs expose you to an interdisciplinary context, which is ideal for industrial production and research enterprises. By weaving design and communications throughout our curriculum, we have created a culture of excellence that has resulted in several of our alumni becoming members of the National Academy of Engineering—one of the highest professional honors an engineer can receive. Our students often choose to deepen their interests in engineering through robotics, fluid dynamics, design, materials science, green energy, transportation, biomechanics, and space systems.

We continually update and improve our curriculum to provide an even better education for our students. It is our top priority to attract outstanding students to the MMAE undergraduate and graduate programs.
