What is Aerospace & Mechanical Engineering?

Aerospace and mechanical engineers design and build unique, complex mechanical-optical-electronic (mechoptronic) systems, ranging in scale from the International Space Station to microscale electric generators and pumping systems.

A broad range of engineering science research is critical to developing novel, complex mechoptronic systems. As a consequence, aerospace and mechanical engineers conduct extensive basic and applied research within and crossing their usual disciplinary boundaries, they also synthesize research from many other disciplines.

Have you ever seen a sea star run?

Eva Kanso, Zohrab A. Kaprielian Fellow in Engineering and professor in the AME department, was featured in KQED’s Deep Look into sea star motion. The transition of a sea star’s hundreds of tubular feet from a walk to a run is essential in performing functions like chasing prey. Kanso’s model provides insight that could help lead to the development of … Read More

Experiencing an Unusual Semester

Students have been taking some USC engineering classes remotely for close to 50 years, but this year it’s been taken to a whole new level. AME freshman Kaitlyn Kumar shares her experience with “Zoom University: Starting USC at Home.” Even lab classes are online. Nick Bortolon describes taking the AME 341 lab class remotely over the summer in “Mechoptronics: Becoming … Read More
