Master of Science (MS) in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering

The MS in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) provides a pathway for students to further develop skills to advance their careers in industry or pursue a doctoral degree. MAE graduate students will find a collaborative and collegiate community of faculty, staff, and students.

The programs offers four specialization tracks:

  • Thermal/Fluids
  • Solids/Structure
  • Design/Manufacturing
  • General

Admission Requirements
Prospective students must have a Bachelor of Science (BS) in mechanical/aerospace engineering or a closely related field. Additional coursework may be required for students without a BS degree in engineering or those who lack adequate preparation.

Admission is granted on the basis of undergraduate preparation and performance, GRE scores, and letters of recommendation documenting the recent technical proficiency of the applicant. A grade-point average of 3.0/4.0 or equivalent, and a GRE-Quantitative score of 700 (155 on the new scale) are typically expected.

Career opportunities
Graduate study in Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering prepares students for many diverse and high-technology careers. These careers can be in industry, government, or academia. Upon graduation, graduates move into the top corporations and industries in the world, such as Amphenol, Boeing, Carrier Corporation, Estee Lauder, Fiat Chrysler, Ford, Fulton Companies, GE Global Research, Honda R&D America, Pratt & Whitney, Siemens, and many others.

Degree Requirements
The MS in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering is a 30 credit-hour program, including a capstone project.
