This program has been designed to build upon a student's undergraduate background and provide additional depth and breadth in the challenging and versatile profession of Mechanical Engineering. The department offers two graduate path alternatives. The Master of Science (MS) degree program is a traditional thesis-based approach whereby the student pursues both laboratory and course work culminating in the preparation and oral defense of a written thesis. The Master of Mechanical Engineering (MME) degree is a course-based master's program which requires additional coursework in lieu of a traditional thesis.
See the Mechanical Engineering page under graduate studies for more information.
