Welcome

The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering offers baccalaureate, masters and doctoral degrees in mechanical engineering and a baccalaureate in Aerospace Engineering. At the baccalaureate degree level, a student can study a sequence of courses to provide an option in specialized areas such as aerospace engineering, environmental engineering, automotive engineering, biomedical engineering, energy engineering, and HVAC (heating, ventilation and air-conditioning) systems.

The Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) Department at the University of Miami emphasizes excellence in education and research, while keeping in par with the growing technology. Due to favorable relative numbers of faculty and students, individual students receive personal attention.

The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering is organized into four clusters:

Additive Manufacturing and Structures (Faculty: Qingda Yang, Emrah Celik, Ryan Karkkainen, James Coakley, Giacomo Po)
Aerodynamics, Fluid Mechanics, Combustion and Propulsion (Faculty: Gecheng Zha, Weiyong Gu, Michael Swain, Ramanthnam Narashimhan, Victor Graham, Ines Basalo)
Astrodynamics, Control, Dynamical and Space Systems (Faculty: Victoria Coverstone, Singiresu Rao, Francesco Travascio)
Green Energy (Faculty: Hongtan Liu, Xiangyang Zhou)

Our Mission

The mission of the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering program is to provide excellent undergraduate and graduate education in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering that will prepare graduates to meet society's changing needs and aspirations.
