Graduate Academic Program Information

The Mechanical Engineering Department offers graduate programs in the broad fields of mechanical engineering and materials engineering.

The academic environment of the department is enriched by the appointment of adjunct faculty members employed in local industry. Under appropriate circumstances, thesis research activity may be carried out in industrial laboratories. Electronics packaging is a technical area of research concentration in the department. Specialization (and resultant certification) can be achieved in the course of completing the ME graduate degrees.

Graduate Programs:

Applying

Students with engineering backgrounds are encouraged to apply to our ME programs. Both part-time and full-time status are available (note full-time status is required for financial assistance).

More information about graduate study at the University is available at the Graduate School site. The application process and Graduate Admission Forms are available online.

Application Deadlines

To ensure consideration for fall semester assistantship awards, all admissions credentials should be received by February 1; October 15 for the spring semester. Application deadlines for those not seeking funding are March 1 for the fall semester and October 15 for the spring semester.

Financial Assistance

Applicants who wish to be considered for assistantships may apply by completing the appropriate section of the regular application to the Graduate School. No separate application form is required. To ensure consideration for fall semester assistantship awards, all admissions credentials should be received by February 1; October 15 for the spring semester.

Applicants for assistantship support are notified by the program director(s) as soon as possible after decisions have been made. Assistantship awards to new and continuing students are made on a competitive basis, normally for a period of one academic year. The program director(s) determine the procedures and criteria for renewal of the award in subsequent academic years.

Recipients of assistantships must pursue a full-time program of study and be involved in research. Funding is not available for the MEng and MS 10 course option degrees. The recipient's obligation to provide service in exchange for the stipend is clearly described in the letter of appointment, as is the stipend amount and other important terms and conditions of the appointment.

To learn about the University's Policies on Funding, refer to the University Bulletin.

Master's Programs

The programs leading to the master of science degree provide a balance of advanced theory and practical knowledge necessary either for practice of the profession or for advancement to a doctoral program. There are two programs leading to a master's degree: mechanical engineering or materials engineering.

Within the broad field of mechanical engineering, students may specialize in one of the following areas:

To learn more about the degree and the requirements, refer to the University Bulletin. Inquiries can be addressed to the contacts listed above.

The program in materials engineering is designed to provide a firm foundation in the science of engineering materials coupled with the practical ability to exploit novel materials' properties in engineering design.

Doctoral Programs

The PhD programs prepare students for basic and applied research in mechanical engineering or materials science & engineering. Research areas are multidisciplinary and reflect the interests of Watson School faculty.

Current research areas include:
