Designing the  Future of  Manufacturing

Mechanical engineers have been at the forefront of rapid changes in design and manufacturing technologies.

MechE Connects Newsletter

MechE Connects is the bi-annual newsletter for MIT's Department of Mechanical Engineering (MechE). Each issue explores one theme that reflects the cutting-edge research being conducted at MechE, in addition to providing an overview of the latest departmental news.

In the Summer 2019 Issue of MechE Connects, we explore new technologies our faculty, students, and alumni are using to innovate in the realm of design and manufacturing. In particular, we explore how advances in manufacturing have revolutionized the design process and unlocked new possibilities in terms of the materials we use and the scale at which we can produce products.
