Our Impact

Oregon State School of Mechanical, Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering

In delivering on our Mission commitments, the School of MIME continues to invest our resources and demonstrate impact in the  areas of highest importance to our stakeholders: Preparing the next generation of mechanical, industrial, manufacturing and energy systems engineering professionals; and performing leading-edge research that ensures a better future for our state, nation and world.

For evidence of our success in meeting these objectives, read on.

 

We educate our students as entrepreneurial, team-oriented, and work-ready graduates in their chosen disciplines.

Entrepreneurial: MIME graduates have a strong record of creating and transforming new companies, products and systems.

Team-Oriented: MIME students participate in teams that win national and international competitions.

Profession-Ready: In addition to their rigorous academic preparation, MIME undergraduates have many opportunities to develop their professional and applied engineering skills during their time at OSU.

We engage in collaborative, cutting-edge research that furthers Oregon’s prosperity, helps build a sustainable future, and enhances the lives of all members of the global community.
