The Department of Mechanical Engineering at NDSU will contribute to the aspirations of a land-grant university in the three primary components of education, research, and service. In support of these endeavors, the mission of the department is to:
- Educate undergraduate and graduate students in the fundamentals of the discipline, prepare graduates (BS, MS, or PhD) to effectively function in society in the field of their choice, and provide the learning skills to adapt to evolving personal and professional goals.
- Develop and maintain high quality research programs in traditional and emerging areas that build on the diverse strengths of the faculty, foster interdisciplinary collaborations, and address national and global needs.
- Serve the needs of the profession, the state of North Dakota, and regional industries to promote and enhance economic development opportunities.
