Pitt Creates Department of Mechanical Engineering ...
The University of Pittsburgh School of Engineering (ENGR) has created a new department by combining the Departments of Mechanical Engineering (ME) and Materials Science and Engineering (MSE). The new department, to be known as the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science (MEMS), will be the largest in the school in terms of both students and faculty.
The department will develop nanomanufacturing as an area of research excellence, complementing existing University-wide research in nanoscale fabrication and characterization conducted at Pitt's Gertrude E. and John M. Petersen Institute for NanoScience and Engineering. A new Shared Nano-Manufacturing Laboratory will be established in support of this innovative research thrust.
