MAE at Rutgers

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Rutgers was founded in 1908 with a focus on driving the country’s industrial growth. Aerospace Engineering was added in 1965 as a certificate program with a full degree program established in 2015. It is now the only Aerospace Engineering degree offered among New Jersey's universities. With more than 30 full-time faculty members, the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department educates more than 600 undergraduate students and more than 200 graduate students. Excellence in both teaching and research is the top priority for our faculty.
