Department of Mechanical Engineering Graduate Academics

Founded as a school dedicated to mechanical engineers, Stevens was the first institution in the United States to offer a degree in mechanical engineering and continues to build on its excellent reputation with 140 years of experience providing a broad range of theoretical and applied mechanical engineering learning opportunities.

As a graduate student in the Department of Mechanical engineering, you'll benefit from an emphasis on multi-disciplinary research collaboration and interdisciplinary studies, including nanotechnology and sustainable engineering. Broad faculty interests include high-performance materials, manufacturing and design, computational fluid dynamics, multiscale fluid physics, ambient energy harvesting, sustainable energy systems, multi-scale robotics and unmanned vehicles, and active nanomaterials and devices.

Mechanical engineering students study and collaborate with multidisciplinary professors, many of whom are pioneering researchers and industry leaders who also hold patents for their inventions. Our master’s programs will prepare you for career success, whether your goal is to make an impact in the aerospace, renewable energy, pharma, biotech, or other emerging industries, devise elegant solutions to building and construction challenges, or manage complex engineering issues with sophisticated technologies.

Our prime location promotes strong professional networking opportunities and collaborations with industry professionals, tech businesses, and other academic institutions for in nearby New York City and the New Jersey pharmaceutical industry hub.

Innovative Research

In our department, you'll have the opportunity to support faculty research on emerging technologies, their fabrications methods, and the infrastructures that support manufacturing and product development.

Besides department and faculty labs, you'll have access to the Laboratory for Multi-Scale Imaging (LMSI), which provides state-of-the-art instrumentation and expertise in morphological characterization to support and elevate research from the macroscopic to microscopic length scale. LMSI supports a vibrant research environment that promotes learning and research activities by offering training classes and seminars within an open and multiuser laboratory space.
