MS in Mechanical Engineering


Mechanical engineers find careers in the fields of national defense, aerospace, automotive, telecommunications, etc. Mechanical engineering also has a long tradition of breaking new ground in such areas as resource conservation, improved efficiency of energy-consuming devices and renewable energy sources. There are emerging opportunities in biomedical systems and devices, as well as nanotechnology and mechatronics. Alternatively, our graduates can use their education as a springboard to law, medicine, corporate management or further graduate studies.

The program is open to students who want to pursue a career in mechanical engineering and professionals who have responsibilities in the engineering, architecture, business, medicine and law fields.
