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.
