The Department of Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Science offers programs of study and research leading to the Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (MSME) and the Master of Science in Engineering (MSE). The MSME program of study is for students who have completed a BSME degree while the MSE degree offers a more generic program of study for students who may not possess a baccalaureate degree in mechanical engineering.
At the master's level, the program is broad based, allowing students to develop expertise in a number of areas including metrology, precision engineering, bioengineering, motorsports and automotive engineering, energy engineering, manufacturing, thermal and fluid sciences, solid mechanics, instrument design, materials engineering and science, and mechanical control and instrumentation.
The objectives of the MSME and MSE program are:
To provide our students with the opportunity to develop a breadth of knowledge in mechanical engineering so that they can adapt to the changing requirements of the technological workplace.
To produce graduates who are able to practice as mechanical engineers with advanced skills and serve state, regional, and national industries.
To prepare graduates for personal and professional success, both as individuals and in team environments.
