A national leader in engineering education, the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering was founded in 1995 and quickly gained national recognition for its innovative multidisciplinary, project-based approach to engineering education. In 2013, the State of New Jersey designated Rowan University a comprehensive research university, and in 2017 our University was recognized as a Carnegie-classified research institution. During that period, Rowan Engineering doubled both its full-time faculty and student population and started the engineering PhD programs. In 2017, we opened the doors of Engineering Hall and completed a full renovation of our original home, Rowan Hall. These projects tripled our available space and provided the College with state-of-the-art research and teaching facilities. We currently enroll over 1,800 undergraduate and graduate students in six departments and are home to four research centers. Further information about the College is available at https://engineering.rowan.edu.

The Mechanical Engineering department is home to 390 undergraduates, 60 MS/PhD students, 16 faculty members, and three staff members. The ME undergraduate program has consistently received high recognition by employers and academic peers with multidisciplinary “engineering clinics” as a hallmark (https://engineering.rowan.edu/programs/mechanical/). We are now seeking to further strengthen graduate research and teaching, while maintaining the excellence of the undergraduate program, through multiple faculty hiring. The major research strengths of the department include advanced manufacturing, material science & engineering, and thermal-fluid sciences. Our faculty are core team members of the newly established Advanced Materials & Manufacturing Institute at Rowan aimed to strengthen materials related research and education. The new faculty members will complement and expand research expertise in the department and build strong connections with government/industry in the region and beyond.
