  • Course description
    This program has been designed to build upon a student's undergraduate background and provide additional depth and breadth in the challenging and versatile profession of Mechanical Engineering.

    Options of study are available in Power/Energy, Applied Mechanics, and Design. In addition to courses in engineering, technical electives may be chosen from a variety offered in mathematics, physics, and chemistry.

    Topics for thesis research could come from areas such as solar and wind energy, heat transfer, corrosion, thermodynamics, IC engines, robotics, experimental stress analysis, finite element analysis, noise and vibration control, aerodynamics, design optimization, analytical mechanics. Part-time students from industry are encouraged to select, with their advisory committee chair, job-related topics.

    Master of Science In Mechanical Engineering
    The following three options are recommended by the Department of Mechanical Engineering for qualified students pursuing the M.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering. Each option is selected to build upon a basic undergraduate background and to provide additional depth in that general area and requires 36 hours of formal course work plus 12 hours of credit for thesis, plus 3 hours of credit for graduate seminar courses. Only 12 hours of credit of below 500 level courses may be used in any plan of study (math courses excluded). Other plans of study may be selected subject to approval by the student's Advisory Committee and the Department chair. Suggested courses for the three options are listed below.
