The Department of Engineering Sciences and Materials integrates an interdisciplinary faculty who are responsible for teaching basic introductory engineering courses. This centralized department offers common and fundamental engineering courses under one  administration; providing an efficient platform outside of the specialized department. Those courses related to basic Engineering Science are as follows: Engineering Graphics, Computer Programming, Numerical Methods, Applied Mechanics, Fluid Mechanics, Engineering Materials and Ocean Engineering. A broad, yet in-depth, knowledge of all of these areas is indispensable in every field of engineering, not only for further studies, but also for the successful practice of the engineering profession .

The Department of Engineering Sciences and Materials is working with limited services.   We are going through this National Emergency process with the recommended precautions indicated by the World Health Organization.   It is our interest that all of us stay aware of the latest information on the COVID-19 outbreak and follow the requirements established by the University of Puerto Rico – Mayagüez Campus.
