Mechanical Engineering

Introduction

Welcome to your mechanical engineering subject guide. This guide contains general information about library services and resources, recommendations for research resources in mechanical engineering, STEM research services, and citation resources. 

Research conducted by the faculty in Baylor's Department of Mechanical Engineering fall into at least one of seven major themes:  (a) advanced materials and additive manufacturing, (b) biomechanics and biomedical engineering, (c) energy systems, (d) geriatric engineering, (e) humanitarian engineering and ethics, (f) sustainable engineering, and (g) thermo-fluids. The projects undertaken, and the instructional opportunities they inspire, tend to be interdisciplinary in nature, so ME students at all levels are exposed to a wide variety of perspectives as they explore all aspects of mechanical and biomedical engineering.

Purpose

The purpose of this guide is to provide an overview of the library resources and services available to Baylor faculty, staff, and students interested in this subject area.

Audience

This library guide is part of our “spotlight on the disciplines” literacy tier. In this tier you will be introduced to advanced academic research skills. These skills are developed by working with research librarians in upper-level courses specific to their discipline. The spotlight represents the in-depth instruction, library guides, advanced search strategies, and research consultations provided by the research & engagement librarians.
