Master of Engineering with an emphasis in Mechanical Engineering

Requirements for the Master of Engineering (MEng) with an emphasis in Mechanical Engineering

For this 30-unit plan, you take:

  • 3 units in applied mathematics, in a relevant topic such as linear algebra, partial differential equations, or applied mathematics modeling
  • 3 units in engineering management (course may be offered through such colleges as engineering, business, or management)
  • 18 units in mechanical engineering electives selected with your advisory committee's approval.  Up to 6 units outside of mechanical engineering in a related engineering or interdisciplinary field are allowed here.
  • 6 units of additional courses from mechanical engineering or related areas, selected with your advisory committee's approval.  This can include up to 6 units in an optional practice-oriented project, developed and conducted under your advisory committee's guidance and focused on a problem of interest to the practicing engineering community.
  • Satisfy the requirements of a capstone event, which is developed and administered by your advisory committee

If you do not have a bachelor’s degree or an equivalent in Mechanical Engineering, then you will be required to complete pre-admission courses to achieve equivalency.

Please note that, if you have a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology (BSET), it will be treated as a non-engineering degree, and you will have to take pre–admission coursework that will prepare you for the graduate program in mechanical engineering.
