The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez invests heavily in resources aimed at providing its students, faculty, staff, and our community a great experience.
Design, Analysis, and Prototyping Services
Intramural practice projects in design, analysis and prototyping are proposed to help our community developed their ideas. Using the form below you will provide information about the project you want us help you develop. The faculty and staff of the Department of Mechanical Engineering will study the information and contact you. The project, if approved by the Campus Committee of Intramural Practice will be developed in the facilities of the Department of Mechanical Engineering and supervised by our faculty and technical personnel.
To expedite the process is important to have as much information as possible about the project. We will evaluate your request as soon as possible. Thank you for considering the Department of Mechanical Engineering for the development of your dreams!

Computer Center (CADLAB) Services
Mechanical Engineering Students can request exclusive access to our CADLab. The CADLab houses workstations capable of handling the basic to mid-level computations required by the cutting-edge, industry-grade software installed.
Students are capable of:
- Simulating complex Fluid Dynamics and Solid Dynamics required to model the behavior of real-world applications.
- Developing algorithms in modern and flexible computer programming environments to model phenomena seen in experiments.
- Designing advanced components to be used in projects and research.
- Simulating the behavior of assemblies digitally.
- Many great experiences that will prepare them to excel in their professional careers.
The CADLab workstations are available 24/7 to students with a magnetic access key that can be requested through this procedure. (The CADLab also offers printing services to students with an access key at a low cost.)
