Resources

The department has plenty of resources for graduate students, the majority of which are not administered by GAME. You can find links to many of these resources below:

Feeling stressed? The MechE "Resources for Easing Friction and Stress" (REFS) program is an initiative for the graduate program in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Students who are formally trained to be mediators will be responsible to discuss issues (both academic and personal) and to provide information on appropriate resources when a peer graduate student comes for informal advice and possible informal conflict resolution. Visit the ME REFS site for more information.

Want to make something? MakerWorks is a student makerspace supported by the MechE department. Info about the space and how to get access is available on the MakerWorks website.

The Mechanical Engineering Graduate Association of Women (MEGAWomen) aims to mentor women students in the department and enrich their professional and personal lives. More info is available on the MEGAWomen website

Seminars and other events hosted by the department are posted on the MechE department calendar.

Need help getting access to certain articles or books? MIT libraries provide many services, including a guide specific to mechanical engineering.
