Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering

Mechanical engineers develop the physical systems and devices that modern society demands.

From automobiles to air conditioning, prosthetic limbs to autonomous machines, and rocket engines to satellites.


Our researchers are breaking new ground in fluid and thermal systems, controls and robotic systems, and computer-integrated mechanical and electromechanical systems, among other areas.

If you want to work with engineers who have developed lightweight new protective materials with applications in national defense, sports medicine, and transportation; robots that aid in the education of children with autism; technological methods of leading wildlife away from danger areas; and much more, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering might be the course of study for you.

Focus on Robotics


The faculty members of the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering are helping the world move. Learn more about what moves them.  

Labs and Groups

Much of our research is multi-disciplinary. Our faculty and students partner with colleagues in other departments in the School of Engineering, as well as other NYU Schools.
