Among the subjects taught and researched by the faculty of the mechanical engineering program are the following: active material, aerospace, vibrations and acoustics, heat transfer, fluid flow (and computational fluid dynamics), environmental transport processes, multiphase flow, energy conservation and conversion technologies, alternative energy including solar power, automatic control, robotics, biomedical engineering, nuclear engineering, structural properties of engineering materials, and composites.

Graduate students have access to all departmental laboratories and equipment as well as the facilities of the National Supercomputing Center for Energy and the Environment. The department supports numerous networked workstations.

The laboratories of the department include an extensive acoustics and vibrations facility, a thermal-fluids capability, a full array of mechanical testing machines, measurement and control laboratory, and a low-moderate speed wind tunnel. A unique laboratory also exists for full-scale testing of ducts and diffusers, including indoor air quality and HVAC equipment.

In addition to a recently established material performance laboratory, several faculty members are developing and testing different designs of solar power generators.
