Mechanical Engineering Department
Chair: Dr. Junling (Joyce) Hu
The Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering is intended to prepare individuals with a strong mathematical, scientific, or technical background for entry into the Mechanical Engineering field at an advanced level and for further study leading to the doctorate. Admission to the program requires a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering or a related engineering and/ or design curriculum and make up of any deficiencies in previous training. Furthermore, an undergraduate background that includes elementary physics and calculus sequences, and linear algebra is required. The Design Management concentration area also requires a substantial proficiency in design to be demonstrated via previous design training or work experience. The Manufacturing Management concentration area requires an engineering/business background with substantial industrial experience. Applicants are expected to have an average of B or better in their undergraduate course work. The Department also offers, as an integral part of the Mechanical Engineering Masters Degree, the opportunity to specialize in several Concentration areas.
