Air travelers today often experience delays as a result of numerous airplanes parked on the ground and in the air at any given moment. (Read more about Engineers study bats to improve aviation travel)
The Department of Engineering Science and Mechanics provides a strong foundation and a sturdy framework for the discovery, development, transfer, and implementation of new knowledge in the areas of mechanics of materials and material systems, fluid mechanics, dynamics and vibration, biomechanics, and computational methods. The department is fully committed to providing an environment for strong undergraduate and graduate education that emphasizes fundamental understanding rather than specialization, high-quality teaching, innovation, frontier-level research, and service to the professional mechanics community.
