Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest and oldest branches of engineering and can require work that ranges from the design and manufacture of very fine and sensitive instruments with micro and nano scales, to the design and fabrication of huge power plants. The ME program emphasizes a fundamental approach to engineering in which the student learns to identify needs, define problems and apply basic principles and techniques to obtain a solution. This philosophy is incorporated in the classroom lectures, laboratory activities, design projects and research. ME graduates are expected to deal with moving devices and complex systems. Students learn about materials, design, manufacturing, solid and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, control, and instrumentation, to understand mechanical systems. Specialized ME subjects include energy conversion, energy management, air conditioning, turbumachinery, composite materials and materials processing, combustion, fracture mechanics, selected topics in mechatronics and vibration, control engineering, introduction to robotics, selected topics in manufacturing and design, maintenance engineering, biomechanics and selected topics in bioengineering. (Total credit hours is 30 which includes 9 credit hours of thesis work).
