Program Description

Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering

Universidad del Turabo


The Master of Science with specialization in Mechanical Engineering provides a rigorous educational experience in electrical engineering. The program affords an opportunity for practicing engineers and others to advance their technical competencies and develop professionally. Each student is required to take five (5) designated core courses and complete the remaining coursework requirements by selecting from a wide range of electives in power systems, control systems, electronics, computers, digital signal processing, and other department-approved electives. Students may choose one of three study plans: M.S. with thesis, M.S. with the project, or M.Eng. course-only. Successful completion of an M.S. degree will uniquely prepare graduates for future doctoral studies or challenging careers in industry; an M.Eng. degree will greatly enhance professional qualifications for career advancement or future academic endeavors. If an area of specialization is not declared, a student will have the opportunity to collaborate with a professor in research in other areas of interest in mechanical engineering. There is currently an ongoing effort in the area of biomechanics which may be of high interest to many students.

  • Plan 1 (M.S. degree-Thesis). Plan 1 is an excellent option for full-time students with a strong interest in research.
  • Plan 2 (M.S. degree-Special Project). Plan 2 is ideal to conduct design and development in an area of particular interest
  • Plan 3 (M. Eng. degree). Plan 3 caters primarily to working professionals who seek highly specialized knowledge.
