The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers graduate programs leading to either the Master of Science (MS) or Master of Engineering (MEngr) degrees. The MS degree is a research-oriented degree that is available in either thesis or non-thesis options. The non-thesis MS degree requires completion of an independent study. The MEngr degree is an engineering practice oriented degree that requires completion of an engineering design project.
Engineering Combined Degree Program
The department offers combined BS/Masters programs that allow a student to complete a master's degree in as little as one year beyond the bachelor's degree. The master's degree may be either an MS or MEngr. Interested students may apply for this program upon completion of 95 credits toward the bachelor's degree. All requirements for both degrees must be met, but up to six credits of prior-approved coursework taken subsequent to admission to the combined program may be counted towards both degrees. Courses required for the BS degree may not be counted toward both degrees but courses used as technical electives for the BS degree may also be counted toward the Master's degree.
