FASN activities include guiding, coordinating, and performing basic and applied research directed toward making manufacturing assembly operations smarter and more flexible, i.e., more responsive to product/process change.

The Mechanical Engineering Department has recently experienced unprecedented growth in student enrollment. This growth, together with planned research growth,has resulted in the need for additional tenure-track faculty. The ME Department currently has 14 tenure track faculty members actively involved in research, teaching, and service . Investments in laboratory space and other research infrastructure (together with competitive recruitment packages) have allowed the department to attract and retain a world class faculty.
