What Drives Us?

Mechanical engineers use the principles of energy, materials, and mechanics to design and manufacture machines and devices of all types. We explore how matter behaves at extremes and poke at the boundary between human activity and what machines can do. Traditional career pathways have broadened into new opportunities in biomechanics, high-performance computing, infrastructure systems, materials, and frontiers of human-machine interfaces for the benefit of humankind.
