Academics

ME Graduate Programs

The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers four graduate programs; the Ph.D., a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (thesis or non-thesis), a Graduate Certificate in Composite Manufacturing and Engineering, and a Graduate Certificate in Composite Materials. While most incoming graduate students have a degree in mechanical engineering or other closely related fields, our graduate programs are also suitable for students with degrees in such areas as physics or mathematics.

Doctor of Philosophy in Mechanical Engineering (PhD)

The Ph.D. program in Mechanical Engineering is designed to allow for considerable flexibility in course selection and specialization of study under the guidance of our world renowned faculty. The degree requirements consist of 33 credits of graduate level course work. The student must complete 9 credits of Doctoral Dissertation, the Ph.D. Qualifying Examination and a Candidacy Examination prior to completing the dissertation requirements. A Master's degree is not required for admission to the doctoral program. The Ph.D. should be obtainable in four years of full-time study after entering the program.

Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (MSME)

The Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (MSME) program is available 100% online, 100% on campus, or a hybrid of both formats. All formats are offered at the same low tuition rate and utilize the same world renowned faculty.

Graduate Certificate in Composite Manufacturing & Engineering

This 9 credit (3 course) Graduate Certificate is available 100% online, 100% on campus, or a hybrid of both formats. All formats are offered at the same low tuition rate and utilize the same world renowned faculty. In addition, these courses function as “dual credit” with the Masters degree, functioning as electives for that program.

Graduate Certificate in Composite Materials

This 9 credit (3 course) Graduate Certificate is available 100% online and at the same low tuition and world renowned faculty. In addition, these courses function as “dual credit” with the Masters degree, functioning as electives for that program.
