The 32-credit online Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (MSME) was designed to help you gain advanced knowledge for research, analysis, and design in mechanical engineering.
The curriculum offers courses in thermal sciences and mechanical sciences and includes course work in:
- heat transfer
- foundations of fluid mechanics
- principles of turbomachinery
- automatic control systems
- solid mechanics
- engineering optimization
Academic Seminars (2 credits)
You must successfully complete two 1-credit courses of ME 590 Colloquium, preferably in your first two semesters of the program.
Math Courses (select 3 credits)
Mechanical Engineering Courses (select 27 credits)
You and your adviser can tailor the program specifically to suit your needs and educational goals by choosing 27 credits from the course lists below.
- At least 15 credits are required in 500-level courses (in addition to the 3 required credits of mathematics).
- A minimum of 12 credits must be at the 400- or 500-level.
Thermal Sciences Courses
If you use ME 512 to satisfy the 3-credit math requirement, it cannot be applied toward the additional 27 credits of required Mechanical Engineering courses.
Mechanical Sciences Courses
As part of the ME 596 Individual Studies course, you will be required to write a paper on a topic that you and your faculty adviser mutually agree is suitable for publication in a professional journal or presentation at a national or international conference, in order to obtain this degree.
ME 597 offers a topical or special interest subject which may be offered infrequently.
The online courses are collaborative, allowing you to build strong ties with other students and gain perspectives from other disciplines and industries. The program maintains maximum flexibility in an effort to meet both the professional needs of individual students and quality academic standards.
