The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of New Mexico offers engineering education and research opportunities of the highest quality. As one of the largest departments within this flagship state university, the Department has provided curricula and support services for many decades. Our graduates have performed excellently in research, industry, education, and government.

We are proud of our graduate programs for the following reasons:

  • the reputation of our graduate faculty
  • the diversity of research activities, funding, and resources available to our students
  • the flexibility within the Department to develop a customized course of study for every graduate student
  • the variety of financial aid options, including research and teaching assistantships as well as tuition and fee waivers

While most of our graduate students enter graduate study directly after completing undergraduate work, some come from industry. The majority of the MS graduates seek industrial positions involving research and development work; most PhD degree recipients prefer research careers in industry, government, or research and teaching careers at universities. Our graduate programs allow each student to pursue his/her career objectives while participating in important work in areas of basic scientific research.

The department has an outstanding tradition of outstanding scholarship. Several of our senior faculty members have been honored with the grade of Fellow in professional societies. Moreover, some of the faculty members currently hold editorships of archival journals.
