Welcome to the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the State University of New York (SUNY) Korea. In this department, we are driven by our mission to produce the best quality undergraduate and graduate students, comparable to any other university in the world. We meet or exceed all the requirements of the relevant international accreditation bodies. Mechanical Engineering is one of the traditional engineering disciplines, having been taught for more than one hundred years. The achievements of mechanical engineers closely mirror the evolution of human civilization. Thus, many technological milestones in our world most likely involved mechanical engineering in a very significant way. Some of the top inventions of mechanical engineers include the automobile; the airplane; space exploration vehicles; agricultural mechanization; bioengineering; heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) equipment; massive production of computers and smartphones, and the development of codes and standards.
The behaviors in our department that enable us to meet our mission begin with the rigorous efforts we put into hiring the highest caliber professors into the department, the demand for excellent teaching and research portfolio from our professors, our religious focus on the requirements for accreditation, and an environment of fun for students - alongside strong academic standards and the provision of academic advisors to students, so that students are properly guided from the moment they enter our program to the day they graduate.
I hope you will explore what the Department of Mechanical Engineering at SUNY Korea has to offer.
