Mechanical Engineering Graduate Program

Mechanical Engineering (M.S and M.E.)

The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers two modalities of master degrees: Master of Science (M.S.) in Mechanical Engineering and Master of Engineering (M.E.) in Mechanical Engineering. In each modality two specializations are offered: Aerospace and Energy. These programs are designed to prepare students with the skills and attitudes necessary to perform as efficient professionals in the aerospace and energy specializations. In the Energy specialization students are prepared in the study of fossil and renewable energies. In the Aerospace specialization students are offered the knowledge necessary to perform successfully in the aerospace industry. Students can choose one of the two specializations offered: Aerospace and Energy.
