About the Department

Espinosa with grad students

Northwestern University's Department of Mechanical Engineering emphasizes cutting-edge research that advances the frontiers of knowledge and engineering capabilities in emerging disciplines as well as traditional subjects.

The department offers premier programs at both the undergraduate and graduate (both PhD and MS degree) levels that provide solid foundations for careers in industry, research, and academia. It maintains an atmosphere that has all of the advantages of a large university, with world-renowned professors doing state-of-the-art research, yet has small class sizes that enable personal attention from faculty.
