We offer MS degrees in Mechanical Engineering or Aerospace Engineering. Students are trained for careers in engineering practice and/or further study at the doctoral level.
The Mechanical Engineering and Aerospace Engineering Master of Science programs have no core course requirements. However, at least 21 credits of the student's program must be MAE courses.
The comprehensive exam for the All-Course option is an oral exam in the area of the student's specialization conducted by a committee of at least two faculty members of the department. The comprehensive examination is designed to evaluate the student's mastery of their program of study and their ability to integrate knowledge acquired through their program. The comprehensive examination date will be established by the Director of Graduate Studies and will be held within one week of the conclusion of each semester.
