In the Engineering Mechanics program offered by the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, students in engineering mechanics develop a strong foundation in mathematics, physics, and chemistry. The program derives its strength from a rigorous curriculum composed of statics, dynamics, solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, and mechanics of materials courses. These topics form the basis of all engineering disciplines and have wide applicability in modern engineering. Special emphasis is placed on advanced dynamics, continuum mechanics, and the rapidly emerging field of computational mechanics. Laboratory experiments in fluid mechanics and mechanics of materials complement an integrated design sequence, which starts freshman year. Engineering design, communication, teamwork, and laboratory experiences are integrated throughout the entire curriculum. Students also have the opportunity for independent, creative work in a one-on-one or small group environment under the supervision of a faculty member.
Students in engineering mechanics also benefit from a built-in area of specialization in one of seven secondary fields within mechanics, such as biomechanics, experimental mechanics, mechanics of materials and more. Alternatively, students may fashion their own area of specialization with departmental approval. At the end of the curriculum, students take the capstone senior design course where the knowledge and skills they have learned are applied to projects submitted to the department by corporate or faculty sponsors, preparing Engineering Mechanics students for their next leap into industry or graduate school.
