About

The UW Department of Mechanical and Energy Systems Engineering prepares next generation of engineers who are the bedrock of the industries of aerospace, auto, biotech, microelectronics, energy, and much more. 

Mechanical engineering is the broadest of all engineering disciplines, dealing with solid mechanics, fluid dynamics, aerodynamics, heat transfer, energy conversion, vibration, design, manufacturing, controls, materials science, and electromechanical systems. Energy systems engineering examines topics such as energy, environmental engineering, sustainability, renewable energy, and public policy issues relevant to energy conversion systems.

Our department offers many opportunities for undergraduate student enrichment outside the classroom. These include senior design projects and registered student organizations that involve participation in national competitions and faculty-guided research in our exceptional laboratories. Here are some examples:

  • a senior design project team called the UW Space Rangers who were 1 of only 7 teams selected to advance to Phase II of NASA’s 2023 Micro-g Neutral Buoyancy Experiment Design Teams (NExT) engineering design challenge,
  • the mechanical engineering-supported SAE group, WyoMoto, placed first in the Formula Hybrid-Electric Competition in New Hampshire, and
  • many other undergraduate students who participate in research with faculty every semester, which gives the students hands-on training and often resulting in outcomes such as publications on pressing engineering problems.

Your support helps us continue to provide our students with unique opportunities like these through funding of projects, travel to competitions, and research supplies for students. Thank you for helping us enhance student experiences and prepare our students for their future careers!
