Mechanical Engineering at Stevens

The mission of the Department of Mechanical Engineering is to produce graduates with a broad-based foundation in fundamental engineering principles and liberal arts together with the depth of disciplinary knowledge needed to succeed in a career in mechanical engineering or a related field, including a wide variety of advanced technological and management careers.

“The opportunity to conduct meaningful research with world-class faculty, study abroad, as well as take part in the many extracurricular activities on campus, was why I decided to attend Stevens.”

The Mechanical Engineering department at Stevens trains its students with a broad-based foundation in fundamental engineering principles and liberal arts together with the depth of disciplinary knowledge needed to succeed in a career in mechanical engineering or a related field, including a wide variety of advanced technological and management careers. The department offers programs leading to the degrees of Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) in Mechanical Engineering, as well as graduate degrees of Master of Engineering (M.E.) in Mechanical Engineering, Engineer in Mechanical Engineering, and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Mechanical Engineering.

Programs at the undergraduate and graduate level provide studies in broad areas of design, fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, and thermodynamics. Areas of research and specialization include acoustics, combustion and air pollution, computational fluid dynamics and heat transfer, computer-aided design and manufacturing, continuum mechanics, control theory, energy conservation, fracture mechanics, heat transfer, kinematics, lubrication theory, machine design, mechanisms, micro-electrical-mechanical systems (MEMS), multiphase flow, nanotechnology, noise control, robotics, solar energy, stress analysis, system dynamics, turbomachinery, and vehicle dynamics. Undergraduate and graduate students work alongside visiting scholars and faculty conducting research to advance the field of Mechanical Engineering in these areas.

About The Mechanical Engineering Programs

Experiential Learning

The Mechanical Engineering curriculum is unique in its structure and what it offers to the student. It provides students with experiential learning every semester in the form of the Stevens Design Spine. The department believes that design differentiates engineering from other technical disciplines and has established its central role in the learning process accordingly. Through the Design Spine, each semester students get the opportunity to apply what they are learning in their more traditional engineering courses within the context of engineering…

History

The Stevens family were pioneer engineers, inventors and entrepreneurs whose achievements molded American society and mechanical engineering. Stevens Institute of Technology was founded in 1870 by a bequest in the will of Edwin A. Stevens, son of Colonel John Stevens III. The original trustees determined that Stevens should have a single, rigorous engineering curriculum leading to a baccalaureate degree they designated "Mechanical Engineer." The undergraduate program encompassed most of the then-existing and emerging engineering disciplines and…
