Cutting Edge Research
Innovation. Interdisciplinary collaboration. Complex problem-solving. Grand challenges. These are the hallmarks of an institution - and a faculty - whose focus is on the research that helps change the way the world works and address our society's challenges. In Carnegie Mellon University's Mechanical Engineering Department, you will encounter some of the world's pre-eminent experts in their fields as well as discover an environment that sets no limits on innovation through interdisciplinary collaboration.
State-of-the-art research is being performed within groups of faculty whose expertise lies in fundamental areas of mechanical engineering, but also among faculty with complementary expertise who solve challenging problems in cross-cutting areas of research. See groups of faculty according to fundamental areas and cross-cutting areas.
