Welcome Prospective Students to the Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics web site.

The mission of the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics of Drexel University is to encourage and enable knowledge through

  • the education of engineers for leadership in industry, business, academia, and government; and
  • the establishment of internationally recognized research programs.

This mission is accomplished by the delivery of an outstanding curriculum, the participation of our students in one of the nation's most prestigious co-operative program, and through the scholarly activities of the faculty.

Undergraduate students are introduced to mechanical engineering and all of the various topics that are incorporated in the curriculum, while graduate students can specialize in an area that they have decided to pursue in more detail.
