Program Description

Master in Mechanical Engineering

Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) Dubai

The Master of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering is a 30 credit hour degree program. It is intended to be a terminal degree program designed for those who wish to become a leader in the mechanical engineering field.

This degree is particularly well-suited for students who wish to study part-time, for those interested in updating their technical skills, or for those not focused on a research-oriented Master of Science thesis. A conventional thesis is not required for the program. In its place, students complete a capstone experience, which may be a design project leadership course, a well-organized and carefully chosen industrial internship, or a project with a paper option. A research methods course may also fulfill the capstone experience.

Three focus areas, specializations, are o­ffered at RIT Dubai: Sustainability, Thermo/Fluids Engineering and Mechanics, and Design. Part-time working students have the option of attending evening classes.

Career Options

Because of their comprehensive training and education, mechanical engineers are often called upon to assume management positions. They work in many different industries and businesses as product developers, researchers, prototype designers, automotive engineers, aerospace engineers, management consultants, among many others and many serve in senior leadership positions in their fields.
