About Princeton University
Princeton's Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering has played a leading role in fluid modeling and measurement, propulsion, combustion and aerospace dynamics over the past half century. By exploiting its multi-disciplinary character and stressing engineering fundamentals, the department seeks to educate the very best students for future positions of leadership in areas of rapidly evolving technology. Intellectual independence and creativity are fostered among undergraduate students through participation in research, design and other project opportunities. Graduate students explore the frontiers of science and technology through a wide range of scholarly activities. These include in-depth thesis level research, formal research presentations, and teaching.The Department is a part of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and is located in the Engineering Quadrangle (E-Quad ) at the northeast corner of the Princeton campus. Research laboratories are in Duffield Hall, the J-Wing, the Energy Wing, and in the Von Neumann Building, all of which are interconnected portions of the Engineering Quadrangle complex. Larger facilities, principally associated with gas dynamics..., as well as some of the computational and modeling facilities, are located in the Gas Dynamics Laboratory at the James Forrestal Campus, a short distance from the main campus.
