Engineering Real-World Solutions

The Mechanical Engineering (ME) department offers graduate programs at the masters and Ph.D. levels to address the continuing technological revolution and the global competitive environment. In addition to the core mechanical engineering subfields, such as mechanical and thermo-fluid sciences, the department's areas of research training include the emerging fields in which mechanical engineering intersects with the materials sciences, bioengineering, automotive engineering, optical engineering, advanced energy technologies, etc.

This broad research scope helps us to create a multidisciplinary environment beneficial for our students’ education and future careers. We invite you to explore our programs to learn more.

New Program Available

New master's program in Materials Science and Engineering coming this September! 

Applications are now open for the new MSE in Materials Science and Engineering (MSE-MTSE) program for the Fall 2021 semester. The 30-credit-hour program is interdisciplinary and will combine learning fundamentals with a focus on emerging principles and advanced applications of engineering materials in areas such as automotive technology, manufacturing, energy, or biomedical engineering. The program will rely on faculty expertise and industry connections from all four departments in CECS and will utilize the newly updated facilities in the Engineering Laboratory Building.
