The Department of Mechanical Engineering was founded in 1968. In 1995, the undergraduate program of Manufacturing Engineering was established. A Petroleum Engineering minor was added to the Mechanical Engineering program in 1997. To reflect the change of these Programs, the department was renamed as the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering in 1998. A Mechatronics Engineering minor was added to the Mechanical Engineering and Manufacturing Engineering programs in 2002.

The Department currently has 34 full time faculty members, 15 administrative and technical supporting staff. There are over 500 full time undergraduate students and over 140 graduate students. The Department is housed in its own separate six-story building located north of the main campus at 40 Research Place NW.

The Department presently offers the following Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degrees in:

* Mechanical Engineering
* Mechanical Engineering with a Minor in Mechatronics - Mechatronics Brochure - 2003 - pdf format
* Mechanical Engineering with a Minor in Petroleum Engineering
* Manufacturing Engineering

Master of Engineering (M.Eng.), Master of Science (M.Sc.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees are offered at the graduate level. Both course work and a dissertation are required for the M.Sc. and Ph.D. Those taking the M.Eng. degree have the option of taking a course-based or a thesis-based program.

Graduate degrees are tailored to meet the interests and needs of individual students. Students should consult with a faculty advisor to plan an individualized program of study and research.

The Department has six major research areas:

* Applied Mechanics
* Nano-MEMS, Automation, Control, and Robotics
* Bioengineering
* Thermo-Fluids, Energy Systems & Environment
* Manufacturing Engineering
* Design and Materials

The Department received research funds of over 5.5 million dollars in 2004.
