From Your Mechanical Engineering Chair Dr. Teodora Rutar Shuman
As a student in our undergraduate and graduate programs you join an inclusive, collaborative, and growing department... Welcome Letter from the Chair
In the urban center of one of the nation’s fastest growing technology and engineering hubs, you will find the Mechanical Engineering Department known for its commitment to student learning and professional formation. Our technically rigorous design-focused education is situated in a collaborative environment that emphasizes individual attention and connections to industry, while preparing students to help create a more just and humane world.
Seattle University’s Mechanical Engineering department provides undergraduates with strong foundations in areas of mathematics, basic sciences, engineering theory and practice and the humanities and social sciences, while our Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering program develops skills for advanced and leadership positions. Both programs work closely with our Advisory Board of industry professionals from Amazon, Boeing, Kenworth, K2 Sports, Microsoft, FSi consulting engineers, Seattle City Light and Uptake Technologies to identify the skillsets required for professional success.
Seattle University’s commitment to lifelong learning provides you with programs that build practical engineering skills and develop your social, economic and environmentally responsible professionalism.

Grad School is Coming
Titled “Revolutionizing Engineering Education through Industry Immersion and a Focus on Identity,” this National Science Foundation RED grant will allow the College of Science and Engineering to implement a new approach to teaching mechanical engineering, bringing engineering practice to students and students to engineering practice. The college will be able to study how students’ identities change along the way in the hopes that the grant will have a positive impact on all students, including women and underrepresented minorities.
Your Mechanical Engineering Staff is looking forward to making the 2018-19 academic year your best yet!
