Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering
The Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (MSME) program is housed within the Mechanical Engineering department, and provides students with advanced study in engineering with a specialization in Electro-Mechanical Systems. Students are prepared to design and implement electro-mechanical systems to fulfill the needs of a wide range of industries, including aerospace, aviation, automotive, and energy systems. Both thesis and non-thesis options are available, and each requires completion of 30 credits hours. In either option, the concentration area in Electro-Mechanical Systems requires students to complete 15 credit hours from a list of core courses. These core courses address both the theory and practical implementation of electro- mechanical systems. Students are permitted to choose general electives offered within the College of Engineering and the College of Arts and Sciences that support the educational and/or research goals of the student, pending approval from the ME graduate program coordinator.
System Design with an Electro-Mechanical Focus –Critical Skills for Top Industries and the Best Jobs
Mechanical Engineers have always enjoyed stable employment opportunities, even during weak economic periods. Since job opportunities span a complete spectrum of industries and sectors, there will always be a need for capable Mechanical Engineers. The Master’s degree program further enhances these opportunities by providing additional breadth and depth of study. Our focus is on the application of electromechanical systems to the most pressing problems in energy, transportation, automation, the environment, etc. This translates to opportunities for you to build a career helping to solve some of today’s most critical problems.
