MS in Mechanical Engineering

Program Description

The Mechanical Engineering Department administers the Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering degree for those students wanting to pursue an advanced degree in Mechanical Engineering.

Applicants to the program are expected to hold a B.S. Degree in Mechanical Engineering. Applicants with a B.S. degree in a related Engineering or Science field will be considered, however, these applicants must demonstrate competence in mathematics and the basic undergraduate mechanics offered in a typical mechanical engineering curriculum, such as differential equations, thermodynamics, mechanics of materials, and engineering dynamics. The degree may be earned with a thesis or independent study option.

Students selecting the independent study option must complete one additional three credit elective course.
