The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers graduate programs (MS, MEng, and PhD degrees) in the broad fields of mechanical engineering and materials science and engineering.
Teaching Assistant (TA) and Research Assistant (RA) positions are available for MS and PhD students. As an admitted student, you will be automatically considered for TA funding; but please note that these positions are competitively assigned. Interested students should contact our faculty directly to see if they have RA positions available.
Qualified master's program applicants, including those who apply to the 4+1 Accelerated Program, can now earn a Mechanical Engineering Student Excellence Scholarship valued at $1,000.
The program leading to the MS degree provides a balance of advanced theory and practical
knowledge necessary for either practice within the profession or for advancement to
a doctoral program.
The PhD program prepares students for basic and applied research in mechanical engineering or materials science & engineering. Research areas are multidisciplinary and reflect the interests of the mechanical engineering faculty.
