Mechanical engineering covers a broad range of disciplines, including materials, mechanics, systems and control, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, design, and manufacturing, all of which constitute a solid foundation for bioengineering.
Research Includes: Bioimaging and bioinformatics, bioinstrumentation and design, biomaterials and tissue engineering, and biomechanics.
Using light to imprint features onto polymer or plastic, Associate Professor Nick Fang's research led his team to disprove the established diffraction limit.
A fabrication technique developed by Associate Professor Rohit Karnik could be integrated into manufacturing to make large-scale membranes that filter out small molecules and salts.
MechE faculty are passionate, out-of-the-box thinkers who love to get their hands dirty.
