Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering


Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering Department

Welcome to Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) at Mizzou!

Mechanical engineers research, design, develop, manufacture, and test tools, engines, machines, and other mechanical devices. Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest engineering disciplines.

Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Is one of six academic departments within the College of Engineering At the University of Missouri. Established in 1891, this ABET-accredited program is home to more than 800 students and 30 world-class faculty members. The University of Missouri is one of just 34 public institutions to be a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities (AAU) and is the state’s only public Tier 1 research university.

Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Faculty

MU’s world-renownedMechanical and Aerospace Engineering Faculty are at the forefront of groundbreaking research and innovative solutions to the world’s problems. Focusing On a multidisciplinary approach to teaching, they challenge students to explore and collaborate across disciplines.

The Student Experience

Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering students at Mizzou have the unique opportunity to enhance their research experience via Undergraduate Research, where the students work on independent projects under the supervision of the world-class faculty. They will also be exposed to the professional responsibilities of engineers, including ethics and the societal impacts of engineering decisions.

Mechanical and Aerospace engineering students are prepared for the growing industry by talented and dedicated faculty focused on cutting-edge research and teaching. Freshmen and sophomores focus on general education and engineering fundamentals. Junior year students concentrate on courses in mechanical engineering topics, including bioengineering, system design, materials, manufacturing and energy systems controls. Senior year consists primarily of electives, allowing the students to develop an individual study program.The senior experience culminates with the capstone deign project, a real-life design project completed jointly with practicing engineers from industry and government organizations.

Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Degree Programs

MU Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering has a long-standing commitment to provide quality undergraduate and graduate education. The department instructs students in four major emphasis areas: design and manufacturing, dynamics and controls, thermal and fluid systems, and materials. The program offers excellent collaboration with other departments through a variety of co-listed courses and projects.

We offer bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programs.
