Purpose Statement

The MEng in mechanical engineering trains students to become engineers who are capable of finding solutions to complex mechanical and interdisciplinary engineering problems. This program is designed for students with a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering or in a related field. Students in this program will have the opportunity to take courses and perform a practice-oriented design project in topics ranging from renewable energy to smart materials and structures to biomechanics to robotics.  Students will be trained in advanced applied mathematics, computational tools in engineering, evaluating of the literature in mechanical engineering, designing complex mechanical engineering systems or components, and communicating mechanical engineering theories, methodologies, and solutions.  Graduates of this program will be well prepared to work in a broad range of industries, including but not limited to aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, biomedical, etc., or pursue higher education.  


Student Learning Outcomes
Students will: 
  • Solve, analyze, evaluate, and interpret results to complex mechanical engineering problems.
  • Analyze and critically evaluate information from the scientific literature on mechanical engineering.
  • Apply mechanical engineering concepts and tools to a comprehensive design project in mechanical engineering.
  • Demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively mechanical engineering theories and methodologies.
