Welcome to the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Delaware! Here you'll find all the information you ever needed to know about what mechanical engineering is and the wonderful program we have at Delaware. From biomechanics to robotics and control, we're sure that you'll be excited to learn about all of the different areas of study we have to offer.
The University of Delaware’s Healthcare Theatre Program went high tech earlier this year when a group of engineering students designed and fabricated SimuTrach, a device that provides realistic training for the care of tracheostomy patients.
Putting mechanical engineering in a broader societal context involves interdisciplinary collaboration on senior design prototypes. One project was a device humans can wear for chest compression simulations during cardiopulmonary training. Art students made the device look more lifelike. Theater students, acting as patients, helped make it function more realistically.
The American Society for Composites recognized Tsu-Wei Chou, Pierre S. du Pont Chair of Engineering, with the 2014 ASC/DEStech Award in Composites during the society’s 29th Annual Technical Conference Sept. 8-10.
