Department Description

Faculty and students in the School for the Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy perform at the highest level, advancing their research and unique learning experiences that impact all of the programs in the school—aerospace engineering, chemical engineering, materials science and engineering and mechanical engineering. For the fiscal year 2013, SEMTE faculty received $15.2M in research awards. These awards are tangible evidence of the value of the faculty’s innovative ideas and show that SEMTE faculty are sought-after collaborators with the expertise needed to solve the transdisciplinary research problems that are today the norm. 

Central to the school's mission is the education and training of students from bachelor's to doctoral degrees. Enrollments continue to grow across the SEMTE at all levels and in all programs. The number of our undergraduates in the Barrett Honors College continues to increase with nearly 20% of SEMTE majors belonging to Barrett. The unique environment for student success attracts students who make key contributions to research and student organizations, which add important dimensions to the student experience including entrepreneurial activities and community outreach.
