The Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Connecticut provides a vibrant, stimulating and supportive environment for exchanging ideas that advance and redefine the frontiers of knowledge. Our faculty have international stature in their fields recognized by prestigious awards, are engaged in world class interdisciplinary research, and actively pursue a dynamic educational atmosphere for our students. Our department faculty are engaged in research and development efforts under the UTC Pratt & Whitney Center of Excellence with funding of $1M per year. The School of Engineering and the University of Connecticut continue a momentum of unprecedented growth as evidenced by significantly increased research expenditures, and a 20-year state-funded $2.3B initiative to enhance the physical infrastructure as well as research and teaching activities. In response to transformative new partnerships with industry and a state-bonded $1.8B investment in STEM infrastructure and education at the University of Connecticut, the University expects to hire over 500 new faculty in all by 2023. Key developments driving this growth also include the establishment in 2013 of a $7.5M General Electric Partnership for Advanced Materials, $4.5M Pratt & Whitney Additive Manufacturing Innovation Center, $4.8M Fraunhofer Center for Energy Innovation.
The state is home to a large number of international, high technology companies. The University campus is located in a beautiful area of New England, with a moderate cost of living and proximity to major cultural, recreational and urban centers of the Northeast. The University community affords residents a rich diversity of cultural, athletic, artistic and historic experiences; affordable quality housing and top schools for faculty families.
