Getting Involved

In order to provide a real-world design experience in an educational environment, the UC San Diego  Mechanical Engineering capstone design course solicits projects from industry, research, and the community. We invite you to collaborate with our undergraduate students in solving engineering problems by sponsoring Capstone Design Projects. We also have mentoring opportunities for all levels of commitment you are able to provide. If you have employment opportunities, we encourage you to tap into our pool of talented students.

Staying Connected

We invite you to stay connected with us by visiting our Events and Seminars. Keep apprised of departmental news and current events

Giving Back

Our department is committed to fostering a creative environment by providing cutting-edge equipment and tools to our students.  Your gift will support our research and instructional infrastructures enhancing our already top-ranked graduate program and ABET-accredited undergraduate programs.  We thank you in advance for your generous donation(s) to our Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Excellence and Innovation Fund.
