Here at Wichita State University, the Mechanical Engineering Department is committed
to experience-based instruction and research. Our students have the opportunity to
engage in research with our faculty and community even as an undergraduate student.
Mechanical engineering is a broad based degree, used for design and analysis in such
industries as manufacturing, aircraft and automotive, as well as consumer products
and building equipment. In these jobs, mechanical engineers design products, machines
and develop processes for manufacturing. Our faculty have been awarded over $3 million
dollars in the last 3 years in research grant money, with research in robotics, nano,
composites, sustainability, and thermodesign.
Our undergraduate program in Mechanical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering
Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. This means your degree in Mechanical Engineering has met rigorous benchmarks and
goals. We also offers two graduate degree programs -- a Master's (M.S.) in Mechanical
Engineering, and a Doctorate (Ph.D.) in Mechanical Engineering.
As a student at Wichita State University, you can get involved with such organizations
as Shocker Racing; both Formula SAE and Mini Baja SAE, as well as the American Society
for Mechanical Engineers (ASME).
