Academics

Mechanical Engineering is arguably the broadest engineering degree, one that emphasizes the fundamental engineering sciences as they apply to mechanical and thermal systems with applications in diverse areas including energy, materials, transportation (automotive, aerospace, marine...), health, manufacturing, and consumer products. The Mechanical Engineering BS is often the basis for advanced degrees in ME or in various engineering fields (bio-, environmental, industrial, systems, automotive, aeronautical, nuclear, ...) or also in other professions (law, medicine) and in business.

The Clemson University ME department has significant strengths in the theoretical and applied, computational and experimental areas of mechanical engineering and in many interdisciplinary areas. Our faculty is very active and well known for its research and scholarly contributions in the following areas:

  • Bioengineering and Biomaterials
  • Design
  • Dynamics and Controls
  • Fluid Mechanics
  • Manufacturing
  • Materials and Materials Processing
  • Micro and Nanotechnology
  • Solid Mechanics
  • Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer and Combustion
  • Transportation Vehicles and Systems

The Department of Mechanical Engineering (ME) at Clemson University is one of the largest degree granting academic programs in the state of South Carolina. The department typically graduates over 220 BS, 40-60 MS and 15-20 Ph.D. students per year.
