MS/MFG Coursework

Students will take courses within their chosen concentration area:

  • Acoustics
  • Dynamics, Systems and Controls
  • Solid Mechanics/Materials
  • MEMS/Nanotechnology
  • Thermofluid Science and Energy
  • Biomechanics/Biomaterials

and are also required to take classes in one field outside their concentration. There is also a math requirement that can be satisfied with several courses. A planning sheet is provided to help guide the selection of courses. The set of courses used to satisfy the requirements for the MS in Mechanical Engineering must consist of no more than one course from the list of Engineering Management courses.  Students may elect to complete a practicum as part of their course requirements. Courses satisfying the practicum require completion of a major project by students working either in groups or independently.

Students select courses in consultation with their academic advisors.

The number of courses a student will take any semester depends on the student’s funding source, research obligations, employment constraints, and whether the student is post MS or post BS.

Further course information together with offerings over the past several years listed with their syllabi is available.

For deviations from the planning sheet requirements a petition may be filed.
