California Mechanical Engineering Graduate Degrees
Earning a graduate degree in mechanical engineering is a great opportunity, especially for professionally employed engineers looking to expand their skills or those interested in transitioning into the field from another related industry. A mechanical engineering graduate school will typically encourage students to focus their program on areas of particular interest such as renewable or alternative energy, manufacturing, fluid and thermal systems, mechanical design, or bioengineering and nanotechnology. You will want to consider your interests and career goals as well as the faculty expertise at the graduate schools of mechanical engineering you are considering.
You will also want to carefully consider the program format for your ME grad program. A campus-based program might be better if you are looking to do research and want a school with an advanced laboratory with all the latest machines. On the other hand if you are a working professional an online mechanical engineering program that improves your knowledge part-time could be a better choice. This will also obviously impact whether you seek a certificate, masters or doctoral program at the mechanical engineering graduate school of your choice. Some examples of degrees you might choose include:
- Machinery Dynamics Certificate or Mechanical Engineering Graduate Certificate
- MS Mechanical Engineering (MSME) or MEng Mechanical Engineering (MEME)
- Doctorate or PhD Mechanical Engineering
A graduate school in mechanical engineering may help put you at the forefront of an industry that is vital in our modern world and provide you with the opportunity to study cutting-edge technology. Search our directory today to find the program that best meets your needs.
