Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering
Create your own graduate program of study in mechanical engineering. This is a broad field covering a wide spectrum of industries — from aerospace, automative, petroleum, manufacturing, to bioengineering, food processing and communications. Areas of study include thermal science, fluid mechanics, energy conversion, composite materials and structures, control systems, engineering mechanics and manufacturing automation.
Thesis and non-thesis options available. The thesis degree requires a minimum of 30 credit hours of coursework (at least 21 credit hours of coursework and at least 6 credit hours of research). The non-thesis degree requires a minimum of 30 credit hours of coursework, up to 6 hours of which can be from out-of-department courses.
