Graduate Programs

The mission of the Department of Mechanical Engineering is to inspire, nurture and educate leaders in tomorrow’s technology-centric environment while helping to devise solutions to the most challenging problems of our time. To this end, programs have been developed to ensure that students receive both fundamental knowledge in basic concepts and an understanding of current and emerging/future technologies and applications, which include but are not limited to the following areas: biomedical devices, biosensors and cell/tissue-based physiological platforms, composites and structured materials, computational and experimental fluid dynamics and heat transfer, computer-aided design and manufacturing, integrated product and process design, control theory, design of thermal systems, knowledge-based engineering systems, noise control and vibration, robotics and automation, nano/micro system modeling, design and fabrication, sustainable energy and pharmaceutical manufacturing.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering provides six different master’s programs and one PhD program leading to the following degrees: (i) Master of Engineering - Mechanical, (ii) Master of Engineering - Robotics, (iii) Master of Engineering - Integrated Product Development, (iv) Master of Science - Pharmaceutical Manufacturing degree program, (v) Doctor of Philosophy with a concentration in mechanical Engineering. In addition, the graduate programs also offer the professional “Mechanical Engineer” degree and various graduate certificate programs.
