Mechanical and Materials Engineering

Mechanical and Materials Engineering is one of the fastest-growing academic departments at Wright State, with the number of students having increased 30 percent since 2013. The 237 graduates in the Fall 2018 commencement were the most in the 30-year history of the program, and included the first graduate of the new aerospace engineering program. You can choose from nine majors, minors, and graduate degree programs as well as three “4+1” programs that allow you to earn both a bachelor’s and master’s degree within five years. You can enroll in fascinating classes in additive manufacturing, powder processing, metal forming, nano-manufacturing, turbo machinery, mechanical design, and structural analysis. Learn from faculty members active in research and international conferences. Expand your opportunities by taking advantage of our connections with the Air Force Research Laboratory as well as many local manufacturing firms. Recent graduates are employed by DMAX, General Electric, Honda, and Emerson Climate Control.
