Mechanical engineers are problem solvers who are scientifically informed and mathematically minded. The aerospace engineering program at WVU is designed to prepare the student for a career in the aerospace industries and in government research and development centers and laboratories, as well as in military mission-oriented agencies.

The Department provides educational programs at the bachelor's, master's, and doctoral levels. At the undergraduate level, students can major in mechanical, aerospace, or create a dual major in both programs

Students participate in vibrant research program in such areas as aerodynamics and fluid mechanics; alternative fuels, engines, and emissions; bioengineering; control, design, and manufacturing; materials science; solid mechanics, materials, and structures; space flight and systems; and thermal sciences. A number of research centers coordinate the research activities of several faculty in a focused area of research.
