MS in Mechanical Engineering

MS in Mechanical Engineering

The graduate program leading to the MS in ME degree is organized into four areas of study.

  1. The Solid Mechanics, Biomechanics and Design Track is for students interested in the study of solids, stress analysis, kinetics, vibration, structural mechanics, biomechanics including musculoskeletal systems, joint mechanics, dental mechanics, medical instrumentation, and design.
  2. The Fluid and Thermal Sciences Track is for students interested in heat transfer, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and computational fluid dynamics.
  3. The Energy and Materials Track is for students interested in this broad field of engineering that deals with energy efficiency, energy services, facility management, environmental compliance and alternative energy technologies.
  4. The Mechatronics and Controls Track is for students interested in the study of mechanical systems, electro-mechanical systems, control theory, micro-controllers, sensors, and actuators.

Handbook

For all tracks, the thesis option requires 30 credit hours of course work: a maximum of 9 credit hours of thesis, 9 credit hours of primary-area courses, 6 credit hours of related-area courses, and 6 credit hours of mathematics. The non-thesis option also requires 30 credit hours of course work: 12 credit hours of primary-area courses, 12 credit hours of related-area courses, and 6 credit hours of mathematics. More information about the program's options are available in the MS in ME Handbook.
