Although San Jose State University's primary mission is teaching and education, research in mechanical and aerospace engineering is a vital part of keeping our programs current and engaging. Our research objective is multifold: to engage in applied research with industry and government collaborators; to involve and educate undergraduate and graduate students in the frontiers of mechanical and aerospace engineering; and to build areas of expertise within our department. Potential research sponsors should contact faculty with the relevant expertise directly, or the department chair. The areas of research undertaken by our faculty are diverse and ever-changing. For the latest information, please go directly to the websites of individual faculty members.
