Careers

What Can I Do with a Master of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering?

As you probably know already, Mechanical Engineering is a broad field that is vital to many industries. Applying mathematics and physics to design, analyze and build mechanical components and systems like automobiles, power plants, robots, and spacecraft are just some of the applications of this degree. Our program prepares you for professional practice with a broad, applied education across two specializations in Mechanical Engineering: thermal-fluid sciences and solid mechanics. You will have the opportunity to enhance and/or develop the skills, knowledge, and understanding that are critical to today’s practicing engineers.

With further education, one of these paths is possible:
  • Aerospace engineer
  • Sustainability engineer
  • Engineering consultant
  • Field engineer

Purpose Statement

The Master of Engineering is a non-thesis professional degree, based primarily on course work and/or on an engineering project designed with the guidance of a faculty advisor to address a need or problem specific to their engineering field of study (Civil, Environmental, Electrical, or Mechanical Engineering).  This degree program is designed to provide a broad, practice-based education.

Student Learning Outcomes
Students will:
 
Demonstrate the ability to apply graduate level critical thinking skills to formulate and solve advanced civil (electrical/environmental/mechanical) engineering problems.

Demonstrate the ability to, independently and creatively, design, plan, and conduct complex civil (electrical/environmental/mechanical) engineering projects.Demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively the results of a comprehensive research project through oral presentations and publications.
