Program Information

Degrees Offered:

M.S. Mechanical Engineering, M.Eng Mechanical Engineering, Ph.D. Engineering and Applied Science

Format: Campus

Program Description:

There are many options for graduate student in mechanical engineering.

The master of science (MS) program builds on the fundamentals of mechanical engineering typically learned in an undergraduate degree program. Our program is comprised of four program options--biomechanics, general mechanical engineering, mechanics, and thermal sciences--that allow the students to obtain background in manufacturing processes, fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, bioengineering, energy thermodynamics, composite materials and sports engineering.

The master of engineering (MEng) is an interdisciplinary degree program designed to meet the needs of those practicing engineers who wish to follow an integrated program of studies in engineering and allied subjects related to the individual student’s professional work. Students can combine advanced engineering course work with graduate-level non-engineering courses such as business administration, environmental sciences, social sciences, biological sciences or public administration.

The Engineering and Applied Science Doctor of Philosophy program consists of studies in engineering and engineering-related disciplines. It is a multidisciplinary program in keeping with the interdisciplinary nature of modern research. The goal of this PhD program is to prepare future leaders in engineering to advance our current understanding of engineering principles and practices through the application of specialized knowledge in specific engineering disciplines.


All undergraduate programs are ABET accredited.

International Student Requirements:

Any applicants whose undergraduate language of instruction was not English should have a minimum TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) score of: 600 for the paper-based test; 250 for the computer-based test; TOEFL iBT: 75; IELTS: 6.5; or successful graduation from CU Denver¹s Language Academy.
