The Department of Mechanical and Energy Engineering (MEE) was established in August 2011 with the mission of educating and incubating valuable high-tech human resources to the Mechanical and Energy Engineering related industries. The MEE department aims to explore students’ potential in finding and solving the basic scientific and engineering problems in mechanical and Introduction energy engineering related areas, and to help the MEE students fulfill their career in MEE related industries. The Department has developed a curriculum providing students with a broad base on which to build an engineering career. The courses are based on furdamental sciences, including physics, chemistry, and applied mathematics, to which a substructure of engineering science, including mechanics, materials, electrical circuits and electronics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, heat and mass transfer, systems, measurement, and controls is added. The Department also provides design and manufacturing courses throughout the four years with emphasis on synthesis, production system planning, computer applications, and problem solving, adding coherence to the curriculum as a whole.

Curriculum Planning
To obtain a B.S. degree in Mechanical and Energy Engineering, a student has to complete a minimum of 128 credits in which 99 credits are mandatory. (In general, a one-semester course has 1 to 3 credits).
The Department of Mechanical and Energy Engineering offers Masters of Science (M.S.) degree programs for graduate students. The Department has a distinguished and active faculty of 9 members, who are divided into three academic groups, including Mechanical Design/Manufacturing, Thermal Fluid Science, and System Control. Students in the M.S. program, belonging to one of the three groups, must fulfill the following graduation requirements:
(1) Complete a minimum of 30 course credits;
(2) Complete a Master thesis and successfully pass the thesis oral defense.
The duration is 1-4 years.
