Chair’s Message

Page address: http://cset.mnsu.edu/mece/about/chairmessage.html


Dr. Patrick Tebbe, P.E.Welcome to the Department of Mechanical and Civil Engineering at Minnesota State University, Mankato!

Our department is made up of experienced faculty members who take pride in teaching and enjoy being in the classroom. We maintain small classes which provide opportunities for students to connect with the faculty, allowing a heightened learning experience both inside and outside of the classroom.

Faculty members strive to bring practical knowledge to the classroom, in addition to connecting students to engineering practice. Our close ties with the local and regional engineering community have allowed many of our students and alumni to obtain internship and full-time positions with a broad range of engineering firms and public agencies. Many of these groups have specifically sought our students, recognizing the applied education they have received in our program.

In addition to traditional opportunities in the classroom, many faculty members are involved in a range of research opportunities which provide students with research experience both at the undergraduate and graduate level. Whether pursuing advanced degrees or joining the engineering community, engineers leave our program "shovel-ready", capable of contributing to mechanical and civil engineering practice and prepared to make a positive impact in the region, the state, and throughout the world. Welcome to Maverick Engineering! Please let me know if you have any questions about our programs.

Patrick Tebbe, Ph.D., P.E.
