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.
UD's David Burris has been awarded a $300,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to improve understanding of friction and inform materials design for friction control applications.
Professor Feser received a University of Delaware Research Foundation (UDRF) award to analyze the scattering of heat particles called phonons from embedded nanostructures to identify the characteristics that will advance the design of thermoelectric materials with ultra-low heat flow for use in power generation and refrigeration.
Mechanical Engineering Ph.D. student Diana Haidar received a prestigious National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. Mechanical Engineering alumna Christine Gregg, currently a Ph.D. student at University of California-Berkeley, received an honorable mention.
