Master in Mechanical Engineering - Specialization in Alternative Energy

General

Program Description

The Universidad Ana G. Méndez, Gurabo Campus offers the degrees of Master of Science (MS) in Mechanical Engineering and Master of Engineering (ME) in Mechanical Engineering. In both options, students can choose between a specialization in Alternative Energy , a specialization in Aerospace Engineering or a general training in Mechanical Engineering.

The Alternative Energy specialization provides the student with the opportunity for development through courses and research in the management of various alternative energy sources such as solar, wind, ocean, and biofuels. Students in this field benefit from the excellent collaboration with the Puerto Rico Energy Center (PREC) at our School of Engineering.
