Department of Mechanical Engineering

Department Chair: Cy Yavuzturk


Teaching, research, and service efforts within the Department of Mechanical Engineering encompass the areas of specialization in Acoustics, Manufacturing, Energy and Sustainable Design, Turbomachinery, and Acoustical Engineering and Music.

Our continued attention to small class sizes allows for significant levels of personal attention and one-on-one mentoring of our students, and an easier connection between students and professors, as well as an ideal environment for student-to-student collaboration with substantial focus on engineering design and communication skills in preparation of young careers in industry, consulting, and research.


Mechanical Engineers are employed in significantly high numbers in a wide range of industrial and governmental sectors, working on projects that range from designing aircraft jet engines; the manufacture and operation of miniature surgical robots; streamlining the aerodynamics of spacecraft; design and installation of renewable energy technologies; to the optimization of acoustical characteristics of music halls.
