Graduate Degrees in Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical Engineering offers three degrees beyond the B.S. degree. These are:
- M.Eng. Degree - This is our accredited masters of engineering degree. This is principally extended to our best undergraduates, to obtain a masters degree in their fifth year (B.S. + 1 year). This consists of coursework plus a structured research component; there is no formal masters thesis.
- M.S. Degree – This is the traditional masters of science degree. This consists of coursework plus a masters level research project that forms the basis of the thesis.
- Ph.D. Degree – This is the highest degree available and consists of coursework beyond the M.S. level and a substantive body of new and unique research, which constitutes the Ph.D. thesis.
