A Message from Our Acting Department Chair

Dr. Antonie J. (Ton) van den Bogert 
Acting Chair of the Department of Mechanical Engineering 

Welcome to the Mechanical Engineering Department.
"As you explore you will find our programs consist of talented and experienced faculty, yet they are first and foremost superb teachers. Our faculty members are always working to improve their teaching skills and to improve their classes.
In addition to our traditional face-to-face programs offered here in Cleveland State, we also offer several programs that can be completed through our evening offerings to accommodate the working student.
While learning in our classrooms you will also have many opportunities to experience the workshops, lab experiences, lectures, and readings that are sponsored by all the departments in the college. Thanks to several generous endowments provided to us from the business sector, each of our departments is able to engage top instructors, equipment, and scholars on our campus each year. 
I hope you enjoy exploring our web pages and I encourage you to contact our offices if you have questions about the Washkewicz College of Mechanical Engineering."
Antonie J. (Ton) van den Bogert, PhD
