ME Responds to COVID-19

The safety of our faculty, staff, and students is foremost in our minds, and we are taking measures to ensure we participate in stemming the spread of the coronavirus. To that end, we are now working, teaching, and researching in an online environment. 

ME staff and faculty are working together to keep our department the world-class research and educational hub it has been for over 125 years and to respond to challenges with the creativity, innovation, and dedication for which we have become known.
