Student Opportunities

The Department of Automotive Engineering is committed to supporting the success of our students. We offer academic advising via staff and numerous avenues for students to join groups and build community. Options include competing with teams from across the world in team-built off-road vehicles, collaborating with departments throughout the University to build and market Formula SAE cars, and being a part of a partner program to expose elementary students to automotive engineering through hands-on demonstrations.

Academic Achievements

Honors and Awards

Every year, we recognize the outstanding talent of our students and faculty in the areas of leadership, research, and academic achievement. The honors are bestowed at department, college, and university levels.

Graduate Fellowships and Awards

Fellowships are competitive funding options that generally do not require teaching or research requirements. The mechanical engineering department can award fellowships based on emphasis areas, leadership, and academic excellence.
