We are proud to announce that, as of Fall 2012, our department undergraduate enrollment is at a record high of 514 students. Our graduate student enrollment count is at 16 students, including 6 PhD students.
The Mechanical Engineering Department implemented a new women's mentoring program this last fall, in order to increase our percentage of women students in the field. This program pairs upper-class women students with entering freshmen, which gained our department national media attention this past year. We kicked off the mentoring program with an ME Women’s Breakfast at the beginning of the fall semester. Students in the mentoring program have the opportunity for additional support through online social media groups and mentor/mentee-specific events.
