Global, green, and engaged. Our job is not finished until our ideas, our expertise and our people make a real and significant difference in the world. Join us in multidisciplinary research focusing on the most compelling scientific and technical challenges of our age. The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers four graduate programs; the Ph.D., a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (thesis or non-thesis), a Graduate Certificate in Composites Manufacturing and Engineering, and a Graduate Certificate in Composite Materials. While most incoming graduate students have a degree in mechanical engineering or other closely related fields, our graduate programs are also suitable for students with degrees in such areas as physics or mathematics.
