The Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (M.S.M.E.) is designed for students who are interested in engineering careers that require education beyond the baccalaureate degree. Examples of those include engineers performing industrial research and development or students who plan to pursue a doctoral degree.
Admission and Financial Aid
Admission is based on undergraduate academic record, the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), and letters of recommendation for the candidate. Tuition waivers and stipends are available on a competitive basis.
