LEARN WITH US

Founded in 2016, the Mechanics and Dynamics Lab (MaDLab) is an engineering research lab focused on understanding the fundamental mechanics of advanced structured material systems and leveraging this understanding to create new technologies for aerospace and mechanical applications. As a university lab, we are equally focused on developing the next generation of engineering leaders and researchers by providing educational opportunities to graduate, undergraduate, and local high-school students. Located in the “Air Capital of the World”, we significantly benefit from our symbiotic and rich collaborative relationships with major aircraft companies such as Airbus, Spirit AeroSystems, Textron/Cessna/Beechcraft, Bombardier-Learjet, and GE Aviation.
