The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez was established in 1913 as part of the College of Agriculture and Mechanical Arts (CAAM). From its inception to supply engineers to a flourishing sugar industry in Puerto Rico, the ME Department has been committed to a high standard of excellence in teaching.

Hundreds of engineers have graduated through the solid five year program that the ME Department offers and occupy prestigious positions in industries all over the world but particularly in Puerto Rico and the United States. A graduate program at the Master’s level was introduced in 1967 to carry out academically relevant research.
