Mechanical Engineering has a series of 3D printers
that can print real objects from 2D CAD designs
Designing the Future
Robotics and Mechatronics | Our academic program integrates training in engineering principles,
critical thinking, hands-on projects, open-ended problem solving,
and the essential skills of teamwork, communication, and ethics.
Department of Mechanical Engineering
Commitment to excellence in its teaching, research, scholarship, and service missions.
A Virginia Tech mechanical engineering professor and his team have been invited by the United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund, UNICEF, to be among the first to use a new humanitarian drone testing corridor opened by the government of Malawi and the aid agency.
The team will test a new autonomous drone designed to fly to remote locations and collect dried blood samples for HIV testing.
Jobs at Mechanical Engineering
The National Science Foundation recently awarded $400,000 to Virginia Tech as part of an initiative to build the theoretical and experimental foundations of scalable, 3-D printing at the nano-level.
Rayne Zheng, assistant professor of mechanical engineering in the College of Engineering, will use the award for Additive Nano-Manufacturing of Resilient Materials to develop technologies to allow researchers to 3-D print at the nano-level and scale up their creations.
