Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics
Mechanical Engineers use the principles of energy, materials and mechanics to design and manufacture machines and devices of all types and create the processes and systems that drive technology and industry. Mechanical Engineers touch virtually every aspect of life and specialize in the areas of manufacturing, aerospace, robotics, or automotive and alternative energy, and often cross over into other engineering disciplines, working in nanotechnology, plasma engineering or creating artificial organs. Drexel’s Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics (MEM) is a premier institution for mechanical engineering education with dedicated dynamic faculty, state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, outstanding curriculum and nationally recognized research programs in concert with the nation’s most prestigious cooperative education program.
