The Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering (MME) is part of the College of Engineering and Computing at FIU and offers a curriculum which is designed to give our students a thorough understanding of the basic laws of science and to stimulate and develop creative thinking, a professional attitude, economic judgment and environmental consciousness. The aim is to develop the students’ potential to the fullest, to prepare the students for superior performance as engineers, and to provide the students with the fundamental principles necessary for pursuing advanced study in the diverse fields of engineering, science and business.

The Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering (MME) offers BS, MS, and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering and MS and PhD degrees in Materials Science and Engineering. Mechanical and materials engineering are, and will be, of critical importance in areas as diverse as space exploration, environmental control, defense, energy issues, transportation and bioengineering.
