Project-based learning, impactful research and an entrepreneurial spirit are defining the next generation of engineers at CU Boulder's Paul M. Rady Department of Mechanical Engineering. At CU, our mechanical engineering students learn from engaged faculty members who encourage students to be active in their learning. Our faculty set the example, conducting research across many areas including air quality, biomedical sciences, materials, mechanics of material, micro/nanoscale, robotics and systems design and thermo fluids. Their work often has a direct impact on human health and safety, the environment and the development of new and innovative technologies. Many of our faculty members, alumni and current students have even started companies to better meet the needs of our community.

In addition to students, faculty and staff, we are committed to fostering a tight-knit community with alumni and industry professionals who enable continuous professional development opportunities for students throughout their time at CU Boulder. Both undergraduate and graduate students are supported with professional development programming, events and mentorship, all part of Student Experiential Education. Together, we are redefining what it means to be a mechanical engineer.
