Georgia Southern’s Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering degree program provides focused and specialized educational opportunities beyond the BS degree. Students select coursework concentrations in Energy Science, Mechatronics, and General Mechanical Engineering, while conducting in-depth research. The MSME degree prepares young engineers to accept greater project responsibility while advancing more quickly in their chosen careers.
Please note: Achievement of the minimum admission requirements of the College of Graduate Studies does not guarantee admission to a graduate degree program. A student who is admitted to one graduate degree program is not guaranteed admission to any other graduate degree program at any time in the future.
- Completed requirements for the bachelor’s degree or the equivalent in the proposed or closely related field of study in Mechanical Engineering.
- A 2.75 (4.0 scale) cumulative grade point average or higher on courses in undergraduate work, or equivalent.
- International students must meet the College of Graduate Studies English Proficiency requirements (6.0 IELTS or 80 on TOFEL).
A student may be granted provisional admission based upon the recommendation of the Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering Graduate Coordinator and department chair.

At Georgia Southern University (GaSou), the mission of the Mechanical Engineering (ME) program is to:
- Produce graduates who will assume professional “engineering-related” positions that utilize their applied technical skills and problem-solving abilities
- Produce graduates that have the technical, analytical, interpersonal, professional and communication skills needed to advance in their careers,
- Produce graduates who will remain professionally current and engage in the pursuit of life-long learning
The program’s mission is consistent with the University’s “…devotion to academic distinction in teaching, scholarship, and service…with a hallmark culture of engagement that bridges theory with practice, extends the learning environment beyond the classroom, and promotes student growth and life success.”
The university’s mission also points out that our “…faculty are teacher-scholars whose primary responsibility is the creation of learning experiences of the highest quality, informed by scholarly practice, research, and creative activities.”
The university’s mission also contributes to “…enhancing the quality of life in the region through collaborative relationships supporting education, health care, and human services, cultural experiences, scientific and technological advancement, athletics, and regional development.”
At the time of graduation Georgia Southern Mechanical Engineering students will have:
- an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
- an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
- an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
- an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
- an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
- an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
- an ability to communicate effectively
- the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
- a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
- a knowledge of contemporary issues
- an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
