Department of Mechanical Engineering

학과홈페이지 바로가기(

Mechanical Engineering is concerned with the engineering aspects of design and development, thermofluids analysis, machine design, manufacturing, automatic control, and the science of machine application. The broad areas to which mechanical engineers contribute are power generation, energy conversion, manufacturing, robotics, automated manufacturing systems, and other applications in the field of engineering. Mechanical engineers who have graduated from the department of mechanical engineering of Hanyang University have made great contributions to the advanced industrial society. The mechanical engineering department has been supported by Brain Korea 21 (BK 21) program since 1999, through the first and second phases. The department ranked second among the mechanical engineering programs in Korea by the Korean Council of University Education in its 2004 Academic Evaluation Certification.


Undergraduate Program

The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers programs for the students to cope with today’s rapid advances in science and technology. The undergraduate program is built upon a base of course in the fundamental sciences of mathematics, physics, chemistry and metallurgy. The engineering sciences included are mechanics of solid materials science, kinematics, engineering dynamics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, mechanical vibration, systems analysis, and electrical theory. The department of mechanical engineering also offers a specialized program on design innovation. The main goal of the design innovation program is to train competitive system design engineers in the field of mechanical engineering through combining the fundamental theory with the state-of-the-art computer-aided simulation technology. Through this program, students not only learn various practical design theories, but also CAE tools which are widely used in the industries such as CATIA, ANSYS and FLUENT.


Graduate Program

The Graduate School of Hanyang University offers programs of study leading to the degrees of Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy in Mechanical Engineering. The current program is organized into three specialty departments: mechanical engineering, mechatronics systems engineering, and mechanical design engineering. Admissions to graduate study will be granted to qualified applicants who holds a baccalaureate degree in mechanical engineering or who have equivalent qualifications. Outstanding students who have a baccalaureate degree in other fields of engineering or science will also be considered for admission.



The department of mechanical engineering is committed to educating students who can compete in this global age. It offers about the one third of its classes in English in Undergraduate and graduate courses. The classes offered in English include the standard mechanical engineering classes such as dynamics, fluid mechanics, and more advanced courses.
From 2009, the department has started student exchange program with Qingdao University of Science and Technology. The department hosts about 40 of the junior students from Qingdao University of Science of Technology for a year, and offer various classes in mechanical engineering. Also, on the request from Qingdao University, the faculty members of mechanical engineering at Hanyang University will teach one-month class at Qingdao University.
