The UW-Madison is a national leader in theoretical and applied mechanics. Active areas of research include solid mechanics, dynamics, vibrations, fluid mechanics, computational mechanics, biomechanics, and nanomechanics. There are ongoing interdisciplinary efforts to invent, theoretically model, synthesize, and test novel materials and structures with extreme properties and multifunctional capabilities at the macro-, milli-, micro-, and nanoscale.
Unlike at many universities, the boundaries between departments at the UW-Madison are low. You can choose your major, your research advisor, and your courses from several different department and programs. Design your graduate study experience to suit your interests.
