The curriculum for the Master of Mechanical Engineering degree includes intensive mechanical engineering study plus general engineering graduate-level courses to ensure you are prepared for a higher-level position in your industry. From there, you can opt to complete the thesis option or the non-thesis option, but you must maintain a 3.0 GPA to remain in the program.
The thesis option requires 24 graduate credit hours and 6 thesis research hours. Of the 24 graduate hours, 12 are college and departmental core courses. The remaining 12 hours are additional graduate courses from the MCHE department or approved graduate courses from math or other engineering departments. Up to 3 hours may be independent study courses.
Your thesis must be approved and requires a final presentation.
To complete the Master of Mechanical Engineering non-thesis option, you must complete 33 graduate credit hours and 3 hours of non-thesis research. Of the 33 hours, 12 are collega nd departmental core courses. The remaining 21 hours re additional graduate courses from the MCHE department or approved graduate courses from math or other engineering departments, and up to 3 hours may be independent study courses.
