What Will You Study?
To satisfy requirements for an advanced degree in mechanical engineering, you will take three core courses in Engineering Management or Project Management, Quality Engineering, Design of Experiments, System Integration, and Mechanical Engineering. At the completion of these 12 credits, you will then choose an academic advisor and course of study for the remainder of your education. Your choices include an all-course option; a project option, which includes advanced coursework and a final presented project; and a thesis option, that involved advanced coursework and a thesis with presentation.
- Successful completion of a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution of higher education in mechanical engineering. Other related disciplines will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
- An undergraduate GPA of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) is required for admission. Candidates with a lower GPA may be considered for conditional admittance or nondegree status.
- Candidates with an undergraduate degree not accredited by ABET are encouraged to submit a GRE score from the past five years.
