Welcome to The School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering at WSU

Indranath DuttaThe School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering at WSU has one of the largest undergraduate programs in the Pacific Northwest, with about 1000 students and 45 faculty members spread across three sister campuses (the main campus at Pullman, and sister departments at Everett, Tri-cities, and Bremerton). Our graduate student and postdoctoral researcher populations are growing, underpinned by continuously increasing annual research expenditures (currently over $7.5m), with over 130 PhD students and 60 MS students. It is one of few schools where both Mechanical Engineering (ME) and Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) programs are offered under the same roof, allowing our students to be reared in a highly interdisciplinary, enriching environment.
