Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering Faculty

The mechanical engineering department is composed of a mix of civilian and military faculty members. The strong civilian component (approx. 65%) is unique among service academies, and dates from the earliest days of the Naval School.

Officers typically rotate to the Academy for two or three year assignments, bringing fresh ideas and experiences from operational units of the Navy and Marine Corps. They can also explain how studies at the Academy apply in the fleet and the field. A cadre of officer faculty with doctorates adds another dimension to the teaching staff as Permanent Military Professors.

The Academy’s civilian faculty members give continuity to the educational program and form a core of professional scholarship and teaching experience. All career civilian faculty members have doctoral degrees, and many of them are leading scholars in their fields. Working together, our military and civilian instructors form one of the strongest and most dedicated teaching faculties of any college or university in the United States.
