UNH's master of science degree in mechanical engineering is intended to meet the needs of professionally employed engineers and scientists for academic work beyond the baccalaureate level. Its purpose is to increase competence in modern analysis and synthesis techniques as they apply to engineering design. The program centers on a core sequence of courses, which all students are expected to take. The core courses include advanced methods of analysis and design that are of common interest in engineering work. Students complete the program by electing a series of courses in mechanical engineering particularly suited to their current professional interests. Early in the program, students, with the approval of the adviser, prepare a detailed plan ensuring an overall educational experience that is integrated and logical.
