What will I learn?

Graduates with the Master of Science in Engineering (Mechanical) look forward to career opportunities at higher levels of responsibility. Areas of opportunity include, but are not limited to, mechanical systems and structural dynamics, system design and controls, smart and biomaterials, mechanics of composite materials, experimental stress analysis, fatigue and fracture of engineering materials, vehicle dynamics, experimental and computational fluid dynamics, thermal and power systems, alternate and renewable energy, fuel cells, combustion, noise and vibrations, finite element analysis, and micro and nano-technology. Opportunities for mechanical engineers continue to develop with the rapid expansion of the knowledge base.

Class sequencing and scheduling (in the evening hours) are arranged so that a working engineer can complete the program in three years while maintaining full-time employment.
