Department of Mechanical Engineering



This community houses the papers, scholarship and creative works produced by the CSUN Department of Mechanical Engineering's faculty and students. Faculty are given individual collections to showcase their work. Student works, including papers and other assignments, are kept within individual course collections (i.e. BIOL 485). Master's theses for this discipline are included within this community but can also be found in the Electronic Theses and Dissertations Community.
