Phil Egberts

Mechanical engineers are problem solvers. From building gears that are smaller than a human hair to designing space stations that orbit our planet, the scope of our work can be seen from the depths of the ocean to the surface of the moon. We play an important role in designing everything from automobiles and wind turbines for renewable energy generation to bioinspired robots.
