Degree Overview

Graduate Programs

Students are trained for careers in engineering practice and/or further study at the doctoral level.

Students can choose between three options: MS with Thesis, MS with Project, or All-Course MS with Comprehensive Exam. In addition, students can complete a program leading to 2 MS degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Aerospace Engineering.

Normally, at least three academic years of full-time graduate study, beyond the baccalaureate degree, are required to complete the PhD degree requirements.

Students can enter the PhD program with or without a MS degree.

This advanced certificate program is designed as a stand-alone credential for local professionals seeking to enhance their background in cutting-edge manufacturing technologies at the graduate level, as well as for currently enrolled MS or PhD students to gain a credential which will complement their degree program.
