Welcome, Admitted Students!

Congratulations on your admission to the College of Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University! We’re delighted to share with you our Department of Mechanical Engineering.

Here, hands-on learning experiences, undergraduate research opportunities, professional development, and more will prepare you to be an innovative problem solver to tackle tomorrow’s challenges. We can’t wait for you to join MechE.

Tours and events

While campus remains closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you may attend one of our virtual tours guided by a current MechE undergraduate student. 

We'd love for you to experience what makes our department unique, innovative, and collaborative. 

Maker spaces 

Roll up your sleeves for a virtual maker event via Zoom (Meeting ID: 939 2844 9145 Passcode: 140971) on Tuesday, April 13 at 6 p.m. EDT. Assistant Teaching Professor Nestor Gomez will lead you through a remote, hands-on building project. Just want to watch? That’s ok! 

Visit Tech Spark’s website to learn about our new maker workshop facilities where students use laser cutters, 3D printers, soldering stations, power tools, welding equipment, metal mills, and more to fabricate and build prototypes and projects.

In Assistant Professor Bex Taylor’s course, students learn contract manufacturing and negotiation while navigating a card game that reveals challenges and successes during the product development process:

Students tinkered with household objects like mousetraps and rubber bands to create vehicle prototypes for a team challenge in MechE 101:
