Learn More About the Program

Interdisciplinary design defines the UC Davis Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Graduate Program. Department research advances design in diverse fields such as manufacturing, micro- and nano-technology, vehicles, biomechanics, aerostructures, sensors, controls, mechatronics, combustion and energy systems. Graduate student researchers acquire skills to address both fundamental issues in these areas and to design complex, multi-component systems. This highly collaborative environment fosters multidisciplinary research while drawing on the study of mechanical engineering, mathematics, electrical engineering, materials science, biology and nanotechnology.
