The Alan Levin Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering offers undergraduate degrees in mechanical engineering and mechanical engineering with a nuclear option. Graduate degrees are offered in both mechanical engineering and nuclear engineering.
“The College of Engineering at Kansas State University looked beyond my academic record and saw the possibility in me. My time in mechanical engineering classes and the well-rounded curriculum gave me the ability to take advantage of opportunities and the tools to excel. I knew K-State would use our investment to better the education and lives of engineering students. In addition to helping the college continue to grow and impact students’ lives, this gift, which includes scholarship support, will enable the college to provide additional resources to students who could benefit from the same opportunities I did.” -- Alan Levin
