The Mechanical Engineering Department administers the Master of Science in Engineering Mechanics degree for those students wanting to pursue an advanced degree in engineering mechanics. The degree may be earned with and without a thesis. There are currently four areas of specialization for this degree:

  • Specialization in Explosives Engineering
  • Specialization in Fluid and Thermal Sciences
  • Specialization in Mechatronics Systems Engineering
  • Specialization in Solid Mechanics

Specialization in Explosives Engineering

The Master of Science in Engineering Mechanics with Specialization in Explosives Engineering is available to students with an engineering degree in any field. However, students must demonstrate a competence in mathematics and the basic undergraduate mechanics offered in a typical engineering mechanics or mechanical engineering curriculum, such as differential equations, mechanics of materials, and engineering dynamics. The degree may be earned with or without a thesis.

Requirements

A minimum of 30 credit hours is required for the Master of Science in Engineering Mechanics with Specialization in Explosives Engineering.

  • Core Classes—at least 12 credit hours from the following: MENG 545, Introduction to Explosives Engineering; MENG 546, Detonation Theory; MENG 549, Wave Propagation; MENG 550, Advanced Explosives Engineering; MENG 575, Advanced Engineering Mathematics; MENG 586, Advanced Topics in Engineering Science.
  • Elective Courses — at least 6 credit hours from the following: MENG 553, Computer Modeling of Detonation; MENG 586, Advanced Topics in Engineering Science: The recommended courses for MENG 586 are: Theory and Application of Pyrotechnics; Energetic Materials Safety; Shock Physics and Structural Response to Blast; Experimental and Diagnostic Techniques; Explosives Technology and Applications; Energetic Materials Chemistry; Instrumentation and Analysis of Dynamics Testing MENG 589, Impact Dynamics.
  • Courses Outside of the Department — at least 6 credit hours of approved upper-division or graduate course work from another department. The advisory committee may determine that a student’s previous academic experience has provided breadth and may recommend modification of this requirement.
  • MENG 591, Thesis (6 credit hours) or MENG 590, Independent Study (3 credit hours)— A student must prepare and submit a thesis to his/her advisory committee for approval in accordance with the general requirements of the graduate school, or complete an independent study with accompanying report.

Specialization in Fluid and Thermal Sciences

The Master of Science in Engineering Mechanics with Specialization in Fluid and Thermal Sciences may be earned with or without thesis. The student must have a B.S. degree in an engineering or science discipline as a prerequisite for this program. The synergy of this program suggests the accommodation of a wide variety of students (from computer science, mechanical engineering, petroleum engineering, chemical engineering, etc.) to this specialization; hence, the study program may be designed to accommodate each student’s academic background.
