The Mechanical Engineering & Materials Science Department offers programs for graduate study at both the master's and doctoral levels in mechanical, aerospace, and structural engineering.
A Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree from an accredited undergraduate engineering program in mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering or related discipline is required for entrance into our graduate programs.
Opportunities for advanced study and research are presently available in such areas as biomechanics, energy conversion and efficiency, advanced materials, nanotechnology, and computational mechanics. Faculty and students collaborate on interdisciplinary projects with partners in Biomedical Engineering, Energy, Environmental & Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Physics, Biology and the School of Medicine. Students interested in these fields and registered in the department may take courses offered by these programs, and may include faculty from these departments on thesis committees.
