Dear Students, Alumni, and Friends:

Welcome to the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Louisville.  M.E. is the academic home to approximately 600 students and 21 faculty members.  We are also the academic ancestral home to a large alumni base of outstanding engineers and scientists world-wide.

This is an exciting time in Mechanical Engineering at UofL.  We have added a hands-on component to our CAD/manufacturing sequence, and added new experiment to our undergraduate lab sequences.  We continue to grow our faculty, having added Drs. Bhatia, Chen and Narayanan in 2018/2019 and are preparing to search for two more.  We also continue to push the boundaries of engineering science through our graduate and undergraduate research efforts.  And the list goes on.

I look forward to a bring future for Mechanical Engineering, as our programs grows and we continue to graduate excellent engineers while making important contributions in fundamental and applied research.  I look forward to hearing from you, as we work toward the goal of being the premiere metropolitan research university.
