Mechanical Engineering

Master of Science

This fully online program offers working engineers the flexibility to pursue an advanced degree while continuing to advance careers in mechanical engineering and technical management.


As a student within the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering (AME) at one of the top-ranked research universities in the nation, you’ll work with renowned engineering faculty who lead the field in a range of topics, from fluid mechanics to autonomous systems.

Students may tailor this program toward their area of interest, building a foundation in one or more core areas, including:

  • Dynamics and controls.
  • Fluids.
  • Solid mechanics.
  • Thermal sciences.

Students can further specialize their program by choosing options such as microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) or design and optimization.

Course topics include engineering mathematics, from vector calculus to linear algebra; thermodynamics and radiation, which involve the laws of thermodynamics and radiative properties of materials; and mechanics of deformable solids, including mathematical preliminaries, motion and deformation, balance laws of mechanics, and more.

Students will need a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering or closely related field with a minimum 3.0 GPA, GRE. The program admits new students once per year, starting fall semester.
