Mechanical Engineering Options
Normally, applicants must present evidence of graduation with a bachelor's degree in engineering with ability to maintain a "B" average. Graduates in other fields may be accepted, but generally these students have to make up background material in certain subject areas. Refer to the Admission Policies and Application Requirements sections for detailed admission and application requirements. Successful applicants are accepted into both the Department and The Graduate School.
For a M.S. in Mechanical Engineering, research is required in Plan A only. Students following Plan B or the Master of Engineering (M.Eng. ME) are not required to write a thesis, and will fill a total of 30 credits with coursework.
