The 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.

The School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering is expanding its Advanced Manufacturing program to include additive manufacturing, design, automation, and bio-printing; additionally, the school intends to recruit talented leaders and plans to upgrade its undergraduate laboratory facilities to further strengthen its research capabilities.
The School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering aims to establish a preeminent educational and research enterprise in Robotics and Autonomous Systems, including applications of Machine Learning in these fields. The school intends to fill multiple faculty positions in this area during the next 3 years, introduce a sequence of new undergraduate and graduate courses, offer an Autonomous Systems specialization-track to our undergraduates, upgrade its undergraduate robotics laboratory facilities, and augment its research capabilities.
The School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering offers a range of courses in the summer. A list of courses to be offered for summer 2020 will be available in January 2020. Please check back later.
