I. The department of Mechanical Engineering offers a graduate program leading to the Master of Science degree with a major in Mechanical Engineering.

Program objectives are: (1) ability to apply advanced knowledge of mathematics, physical sciences, and engineering principles to the solution of practical engineering problems; (2) meet or exceed the needs and expectations of public and private sector employers for MS graduates; and (3) preparation to pursue additional advanced studies if so desired.

All graduate students must comply with the general requirements of the Graduate School (see Admissions Regulations, Academic Regulations, and Minimum Degree Requirements) and the program requirements of the degree being pursued.

II. MS Degree Program

A. Program Admission

The Herff College of Engineering has established uniform admission criteria that identify the pool of master’s level applicants from which the department evaluates and recommends qualified applicants to be admitted.

B. Program Requirements

A more detailed description of the information listed below will be given by the Coordinator of Graduate Studies to students admitted into the Mechanical Engineering MS program.

  1. Thesis Option: Successful completion of 30 semester hours to include 6 hours in MECH 7996 for thesis and 3 hours each in MECH 7341 and 7342. Of the remaining 18 hours, no more than 9 hours of 6000-level MECH courses or collateral courses may be used in satisfying degree requirements. Only courses in mathematics, the physical sciences, or another engineering discipline may serve as collateral courses; each course must receive prior approval by the departmental graduate coordinator for it to be used in satisfying degree requirements. With prior approval, up to 3 hours of 7000-level collateral courses may be used in satisfying degree requirements.
  2. Non-Thesis Option: Successful completion of 33 semester hours total to include 3 hours each in MECH 7341 and 7342. Of the remaining 27 hours, no more than 9 hours in 6000 level MECH or collateral courses may be used in satisfying degree requirements. Only courses in mathematics, the physical sciences, or another engineering discipline may serve as collateral courses; each course must receive prior approval by the departmental graduate coordinator for it to be used in satisfying degree requirements. With prior approval, up to 3 hours of 7000-level collateral courses may be used in satisfying degree requirements. With prior approval, up to 3 hours of MECH 7992 may be used in satisfying degree requirements.
  3. The department's graduate coordinator may approve transfer credit of up to 12 credit hours previously earned at another institution. For these hours to be used in satisfying degree requirements, appropriate documentation must be provided by the student, and approval granted, not later than the end of the student’s second semester of enrollment.
  4. Students selecting the thesis option will be required to complete an independent research project culminating in a masters thesis. Upon completion of the thesis, the student must successfully pass an oral examination to assess mastery of the thesis topic and to evaluate the student’s knowledge in mechanical engineering. Students should familiarize themselves with the Thesis/Dissertation Preparation Guide before beginning to write.
  5. Students selecting the non-thesis option must pass an oral comprehensive examination to demonstrate mastery of mechanical engineering topics commensurate with the degree to be awarded.
  6. Graduate Assistants must enroll for at least 12 credit hours per semester. A limited number of graduate assistantships are available; contact the departmental graduate coordinator for applications.
  7. Students who wish to take mechanical engineering courses must receive approval to register after consultation with the departmental graduate coordinator or with the faculty advisory committee.
