Program Description:

Where will you make your mark in future innovations? Will you help provide cleaner and more sustainable energy, improve human health or devise better technologies for ground and air transportation or even space exploration?

The Department of Mechanical and Energy Engineering offers a Master of Science degree in Mechanical and Energy Engineering. A concentration in Mechanical and Energy Engineering is also available in the Materials Science and Engineering doctoral program. These visionary, innovative and interdisciplinary programs produce specialists with a strong education in engineering fundamentals.

We're committed to academic excellence and research in all areas of mechanical and energy engineering. You'll study the fundamentals and applications of engineering and develop life-long learning skills in a research/project-oriented environment.

With small class sizes, you can work closely with distinguished faculty members to solve complex problems faced by businesses and consumers. Our faculty members have been honored by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, among others.

You'll also have networking opportunities through the valuable contacts we've established with leading companies and corporate partners.
