Welcome to the homepage of the Department of Mechanical Engineering.  I am privileged to be teamed up with top notch and highly motivated students, a distinguished faculty, dedicated staff and a supportive alumni body with the goal of fulfilling our academic mission of producing leaders in mechanical engineering for Puerto Rico and the nation.  Our ABET accredited five-year curriculum emphasizes breadth and depth in mechanical engineering by incorporating a well-designed balance in theory and practice to produce well prepared and highly sought graduates. Our faculty members strive to provide outstanding education, cutting-edge research, effective mentoring of students, active improvement of curricular programs, service to the university and effective leadership in professional societies.  In the last decade, the Department’s research and worldwide alliances have been strengthened by establishing interdisciplinary engineering teams and attracting increased support.

I am proud of our accomplishments and pleased to share them with you. I am confident that you will find that our program has much to offer. As you browse the rest of our website for more information, I guarantee that you will be pleasantly surprised at the booming activity in our Department.  Take the time and write to us.

Yours truly,

Ruben E. Díaz
