M.S. Degree

The department offers the following graduate programs for full-time and part-time students

  • Master of Science (M.S.)
    • with thesis in Mechanical Engineering.  This program focuses on engineering science in one of sev­eral areas of spe­ciali­za­tion.  A formally defended thesis describing research into a topic of current academic interest is the cen­terpiece of this program.
    • without thesis in Mechanical Engineering.  The focus of the non-thesis program can be varied between engineering science and engineering practice through a selection of elective courses from the Colleges of Engineering, Natural Science and Mathematics, Business, and Law.
  • Master of  Mechanical Engineering (MME) is a non-thesis, 10-course graduate curriculum that is designed as a professional degree. This program provides depth of knowledge in selected areas of mechanical engineering, as well as broader knowledge in other engineering, science, business or law topics.

  • Master of Science in Subsea Engineering is a non-thesis, 10-course graduate curriculum.

  • Dual M.S. Degree in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
    The dual degree program allows students to obtain both a master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and a master’s degree in Aerospace Engineering completing 45 credit hours of relevant graduate coursework.

  • Dual M.S. Degree in Aerospace Engineering and Space Architecture
    A dual degree program that allows students to obtain both a master's degree in aerospace engineering and a master's degree in space architecture by completing 46 credit hours of relevant graduate coursework.

  • Dual M.S. Degree in Mechanical and Subsea Engineering
