In the Department of Mechanical Engineering, you'll work extensively with the tools you need to succeed across many different engineering industries, such as automotive, aerospace, shipping, power, heating and cooling, and machinery, as well as the new and emerging fields of robotics, micro-devices and nano-devices, and medical equipment.
The interaction between doctoral students and faculty members is one of the most significant aspects of a graduate student's time at Tufts.
From soft-bodied robots to superconducting materials to cell swimming at the microscale, our faculty are experts in a diverse array of innovative research efforts. With applications such as new approaches to medical surgeries, the ability to store hydrogen for use in cars, and safely guiding airplanes into airports, these projects are excellent opportunities to solve many current everyday engineering problems.
You'll work closely with distinguished faculty members to complete innovative research that solves complex engineering problems.
Mechanical Engineering as a research field addresses a diverse mixture of problems in fundamental engineering science as well as applications. The PhD program in mechanical engineering is a rigorous degree program designed to establish an individual's ability to conduct independent, innovative research. Graduates from this program typically seek careers as faculty at a research university or as a researcher in an industrial or government research laboratory.
A key admission requirement is strong academic background in mechanical engineering or a related technical discipline.
