Research Activities

Research conducted by faculty in the Department of Mechanical Engineering  includes the study of materials and mechanics to tackle various engineering problems encountered as a result of material failure, as well as to design enabling materials so that the most advanced concepts in technology can be realized; the study of fundamental aspects of transport phenomena in materials processing, electronics packaging and biological systems; and the designing, modeling, simulating, characterizing and testing of a vast variety of MEMS devices and applications among other activities.
