  MECHANICAL ENGINEERING
Mechanical engineering is concerned with the responsible development of products, processes, and power, whether at the molecular scale or at the scale of large, complex systems. Mechanical engineering principles and skills are needed at some stage during the conception, design, development, and manufacture of every human-made object with moving parts. Many innovations crucial to our future will have their roots in the world of mass, motion, forces, and energy—the world of mechanical engineers.
Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest and most versatile of the engineering professions. This is reflected in the portfolio of current activities in the department, one that has widened rapidly in the past decade. Today, our faculty are involved in projects ranging from, for example, the use of nanoparticles to tailor the properties of polymers, to the use of nonlinear dynamics to control unsteady flow separation; from the design and fabrication of low-cost radio-frequency identification chips, to the development of efficient methods for robust design; from the development of unmanned underwater vehicles, to the creation of optimization methods that autonomously generate decision-making strategies; from the invention of cost-effective photovoltaic cells, to the prevention of material degradation in proton-exchange membrane fuel cells; from the use of acoustics to explore the ocean of one of Jupiter's moons, to the biomimetics of swimming fish; from the development of physiological models for the human liver, to the development of novel ways for detecting precancerous events; and from the use of nanoscale antennas for manipulating large molecules, to the fabrication of 3-D nanostructures out of 2-D substrates.
