Mechanical Engineering is a master's degree program for those interested in advanced engineering concepts and tools. Since its inception in 2009, the program has experienced rapid growth in both faculty and students.
Courses cover areas such as energy and power systems, fluids and heat transfer, product design, modeling and simulation, materials, and manufacturing.
The degree program has two options. A course-based path requires 10 graduate-level courses for its completion. A project-basedapproach requires 8 courses and a design project. The design project allows students to deeply explore an industrially relevant technical problem in collaboration with our faculty and the student's company. The student gains from the experience with industry while deepening their understanding of advanced engineering concepts.
The key features of our program are:
- Real-world education – students can apply their knowledge immediately.
- Qualified faculty with decades of industrial experience in aerospace, biomedicine, controls, power systems, manufacturing, energy production, and other areas.
- A flexible night and weekend class schedule tailored to working adults.
- An undergraduate degree in engineering is not required for admission to the program. The courses are designed to allow people with backgrounds in other fields such as biology, business, chemistry, mathematics, physics, and geology to succeed.
