Designed for professionally employed engineers and scientists, the Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering increases each student’s knowledge and competence in modern analysis and synthesis techniques as they apply to engineering design.

A leader in experiential education

Recognized nationally as a leader in experiential education, the University of New Haven offers an intensive, 30-credit master’s degree program in mechanical engineering. Take advantage of hands-on study both inside and outside of the classroom with studies in thermodynamics, computer-aided engineering, advanced fluid mechanics, system vibrations, and more. Course study is enhanced through a number of interactive, state-of-the-art facilities including our instrumentation laboratory, thermo/fluids laboratory, solar testing and training laboratory, and more.

You will also have the opportunity to choose between a project or thesis option to complete your program with a focus on an area of research of your choosing. You will enjoy small, personalized classes with an average of 15 students per class.

Experience the Program with Hands-On Application

Mechanical engineering students can choose the topic for their research projects. A group of students recently opted for the highly relevant and newsworthy topic of renewable, alternative energy sources for their project. Their work explored solar heating of domestic hot water systems, wind turbine energy, and heat pipe theory as it relates to evacuated solar collectors.

Learn from professors who are dedicated to your success.

Our faculty are leaders and innovators in their fields, bringing both deep professional experience and academic rigor to the classroom.
