Welcome to ME

The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers a wealth of opportunities in virtually all industries such as: aerospace, automotive, biomedical, energy (wind/solar/petrochemical), heating & cooling systems, machinery, materials, microelectronics, robotics, structures, and others.

The UTSA M.E. program prepares students for work in these industries through a concentration of focused classes in the areas of design and manufacturing, mechanics and materials, and thermal and fluid systems. These classes are supported through a sequence of labs with experiments such as: a Rankine-cycle power generation, rotordynamics, thermal heat exchangers, diesel engine efficiency, aerodynamics using a wind tunnel, and others.
