UPDATE:  CAMPUS CLOSURE, FRIDAY DECEMBER 8th

CSUN is open and operational, Friday, December 8th.  Based on individual circumstances, some students may still be significantly impacted by the fires. Students unable to attend class Friday should notify their instructors.

Welcome to the Department of Mechanical Engineering. The department has 12 full-time faculty members and over over 1100 undergraduate and graduate students. We offer a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (BSME) and a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (MSME). Our BSME program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

There are six areas of focus within the undergraduate program, which are identified through senior elective coursework.  These areas are:

  • Aerospace Engineering
  • Automotive Engineering
  • Energy Systems & Power
  • Mechanical System Design
  • Mechatronics & Robotics
  • Thermal-Fluid Systems

Similarly, there are four emphasis areas in the graduate program consisting of:

  • Aerospace Engineering
  • Mechanical System Design
  • System Dynamics & Controls
  • Thermal-Fluid Systems

There are over 20,000 square feet of laboratory space dedicated to teaching and research activities, including several state of the art facilities. A portion of the laboratory space is dedicated to our senior design projects which are modeled on the industry workgroups that graduates will encounter on the job. Like professional engineers, our students design and develop a project, from conception through manufacture. In the process they gain valuable experience in working as a team, overcoming technical and management challenges and developing communication skills.

We invite you to explore the department’s webpages to learn about our educational programs, laboratory facilities, and faculty expertise. For more information about the department and its programs, feel free to contact the department office at (818) 677-2187 or via email at .
