Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering
The world of engineering is an ever-changing one. The advances over a new graduate's working career of approximately 40 years will be phenomenal with applied undergraduate engineering courses slowly become obsolete. The most useful knowledge obtained from the undergraduate courses over the career are from the mathematics, engineering science, and humanities courses taken plus the acquired ability to attack new problems in a forthright manner. Graduate school is the next step in a lifetime of learning for both new graduates and for those who have been out a few years and recognize the need for more education.
The graduate program in ME is designed to provide advanced studies for the graduate engineer who wishes to continue preparation for effective participation in the professions of mechanical engineering. The program also provides continuing education in advanced subjects for the working engineer who acknowledges the need to stay abreast of the rapidly changing technological world. Emphasis is placed on the development of the engineer's capacity for independent study and continued professional growth.
The program offers a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (MSME) degree.
