Program Description

Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering

Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT)


The master of science degree in mechanical engineering is awarded upon successful completion of an approved graduate program consisting of a minimum of 45 quarter credit hours. A minimum of 36 credits are to be earned in course work and 9 credits of thesis. A maximum of 9 quarter credits may be transferred from graduate courses taken outside the university, provided such courses complement a student’s proposed graduate program in the mechanical engineering department. Upon matriculation into the MS program, the student should formulate a plan of study in consultation with his or her adviser.


Program requirements

The four elements of study within the MS in mechanical engineering program include core courses (8 credit hours), focus area courses (12 credit hours), elective courses (16 credit hours), and a thesis (9 credit hours). All full-time MS students are required to attend the weekly graduate seminar each quarter they are on campus. A minimum of 45 credits are required for the MS degree. At least 28 credit hours of graduate-level course work, including the core and focus area courses, must be taken in the mechanical engineering department. Eight credits may be taken as upper-level undergraduate electives (a course number beginning with 0304-6xx) or as technical courses outside of the department, with prior approval. Typical out-of-department courses include advanced engineering, mathematics, and science courses.
