Program Information

Degrees Offered:

M.S.; M.Engr.; Combined, Ph.D. in Engineering

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The mission of the Master of Science (Thesis) in Mechanical Engineering program is to prepare mechanical engineers for either technical careers in government or industry or for doctoral studies in mechanical engineering or related fields. This preparation will include guided, independent research and advanced coursework in mechanical engineering and related areas. Both the research and the coursework will be selected as appropriate in specific areas of interest to the student and their graduate committee and for which the faculty is qualified to direct and instruct. The mission of the Master of Science (Non-Thesis) in Mechanical Engineering program is to prepare mechanical engineers for technical careers in government or industry in mechanical engineering or related fields. This preparation will include guided, independent research and advanced coursework in mechanical engineering and related areas. Both the research and the coursework will be selected as appropriate in specific areas of interest to the student and their graduate advisor and for which the faculty is qualified to direct and instruct. Student Learning Goals Thesis Option Goal 1: Graduates will demonstrate a mastery of scientific research by formulating, assessing, and documenting a scientific hypothesis. Goal 2: Graduates will be well prepared for a career in government/industry and/or doctoral studies in mechanical engineering or a related field. Non-Thesis Option Goal 1: Graduates will demonstrate a mastery of scientific investigation by researching and preparing a scholarly report on a topic related to mechanical engineering. Goal 2: Graduates will be well prepared for a career in government/industry in mechanical engineering or a related field. The mission of the Master of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering program is to provide advanced preparation in the practice of mechanical engineering for mechanical engineers seeking technical careers in industry. This preparation will include a guided, independent design project and advanced coursework in mechanical engineering and related areas. Both the design project and the coursework will be selected as appropriate in specific areas of interest to the student and graduate advisor and for which the faculty is qualified to direct and instruct. Goal 1: Graduates will demonstrate a mastery of the practical implementation of engineering concepts by identifying a substantial need, formulating a design or process to meet the need and implementing their solution to meet that need. Goal 2: Graduates will be well prepared for a career in industry in mechanical engineering or a related field.
