Academics - Graduate

The Master of Engineering: Mechanical (MEM) program consists of 30 credit hours of graduate level coursework. Coursework must be completed with a grade point average of 3.0 or higher (see Graduate Catalog for relevant details). The requirements are designed to provide a general program and to allow for some concentration of study within Mechanical Engineering. It will be possible to complete this program taking courses in the late afternoon, early evening, and/or in a distance format.

The MEM degree can be completed with either full-time or part-time matriculation, as well as completely online! The full-time MEM can be completed in one calendar year by taking 24 total credits in the fall and spring semesters (four courses per semester) and six credits through online learning during winter and/or summer sessions. For more information on part-time and online MEM options please contact Engineering Outreach. This degree is eligible for a reduced tuition rate. Please contact the department ( to see if you qualify.

Summary of MEM Degree Requirements (View Full Degree Requirements)
The following five courses are required (15 credits):

  • MEEG 690 Intermediate Engineering Mathematics
  • Four from the following list:
  • MEEG 610 Intermediate Solid Mechanics
  • MEEG 620 Intermediate Dynamics
  • MEEG 630 Intermediate Fluid Mechanics
  • MEEG 640 Intermediate Heat Transfer
  • MEEG 683 Orthopedic Biomechanics

Students may petition the Graduate Committee to substitute a more advanced (e.g., 800-level) course on the same topic for one of these required courses.

Two additional graduate level courses (6 credits) in Mechanical Engineering. Three credits of MEEG 868 Research can be used toward this requirement.

Three additional graduate level courses (9 credits) in engineering, mathematical, physical or biological sciences or business and economics.
