MECHANICAL ENGINEERING SEMINAR SERIES

ME Department Grad Programs

In the Mechanical Engineering department there are a total of five graduate programs centered around Explosives, Fluid and Thermal Systems, Mechatronics, and Solid Mechanics. There is also a PhD program in Intelligent Energetic Systems. Each of these programs offer students the ability to apply their learned specialization in solving real world problems.

    

Masters Degrees in Mechanical Engineering

Program Description

The Mechanical Engineering Department offers the Master of Science and Master of Engineering degrees for those students wanting to pursue an advanced degree in Mechanical Engineering.

Applicants to the program are expected to hold a B.S. Degree in Mechanical Engineering. Applicants with a B.S. degree in a related Engineering or Science field will be considered, however, these applicants must demonstrate competence in mathematics and the basic undergraduate mechanics offered in a typical mechanical engineering curriculum, such as differential equations, thermodynamics, mechanics of materials, and engineering dynamics.

The Master of Science degree requires the completion and defense of a thesis, while the Master of Engineering degree is coursework based.

PhD in Mechanical Engineering with Dissertation in Intelligent Energetic Systems

Program Description

The Mechanical Engineering Department administers the degree Doctor of Philosophy in Mechanical Engineering with Dissertation in Intelligent Energetic Systems for those students wanting to pursue a doctoral degree in Mechanical Engineering. This degree program allows students to focus their studies on the intersection of explosives/energetics and smart systems engineering. Graduates of the program often seek employment within the defense, energy, and aerospace industries, and develop into research & development leaders in these fields. Applicants to the program are expected to hold a BS Degree in Mechanical Engineering. Applicants with a BS degree in a related Engineering or Science field will be considered, however, these applicants must demonstrate competence in mathematics and the basic undergraduate mechanics offered in a typical mechanical engineering curriculum, such as differential equations, thermodynamics, mechanics of materials, and engineering dynamics.
