→ Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering
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. This degree requires the completion and defense of a thesis.
There are currently four areas of specialization for this degree:
- Specialization in Explosives Engineering
- Specialization in Fluid and Thermal Sciences
- Specialization in Mechatronics Systems Engineering
- Specialization in Solid Mechanics
→ Master of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering
Similar to the Master of Science degree, but coursework-based; no thesis required.
→ PhD in Mechanical Engineering
The Mechanical Engineering Department administers the degree Doctor of Philosophy in Mechanical Engineering with Dissertation in Intelligent Energetic Systems for those students wanting to pursue a doctoral degree in Mechanical Engineering. This degree program allows students to focus their studies on the intersection of explosives/energetics and smart systems engineering. Graduates of the program often seek employment within the defense, energy and aerospace industries, and develop into research & development leaders in these fields. Applicants to the program are expected to hold a BS Degree in Mechanical Engineering. Applicants with a BS 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.
