The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering offers a program leading to the Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (MSME). This research oriented academic degree is appropriate either as a terminal degree or in preparation for doctoral studies in mechanical and aerospace engineering. Interdisciplinary research programs are available to graduate students. Graduate students can participate in on going research programs through independent study projects or as research assistants on sponsored research projects.
The MSME program also consists of coursework and research in advanced mechanical engineering topics allowing emphasis in solid mechanics, thermal/fluids, dynamics and controls, or space.
