Program Description

Graduate education and research is an essential mission of the Mechanical Engineering Department; the most critical component of our research program is the students who carry out the theoretical and experimental studies under the guidance of our faculty.

Without the dedication and outstanding work of our highly accomplished graduate students, much of the valuable and challenging research carried out in the Department of Mechanical Engineering's diverse laboratories could not take place.

Requirements specific to the mechanical engineering program include:

  • A bachelor's degree, GPA of 3.0 or better, in civil and environmental, mechanical, chemical and biomolecular engineering from an accredited institution
  • Completion of calculus I, II, and III, differential equations, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer

Specialization in general mechanical engineering also requires courses in strength of materials and structural mechanics.
