"It has been said famously that science is about knowing while engineering is about doing. Yet in today’s world, engineers must be both discoverers and creators. In my classes, I seek to empower students by revealing the beautiful connections between nature, the physical world at large and engineering creativity."
The MME curriculum is adaptable to both recent graduates and engineers with professional experience. Graduates gain enhanced engineering analysis and design skills tailored to their professional objectives.
