About the Major

MEng-mechanical

Our Master of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering program offers a research-based curriculum specialized for applied design and oral, visual, and written communication.

During this program, you will explore fundamental industry knowledge and design-oriented specialty coursework in applied mathematics and engineering management. You can personalize your experience by concentrating your studies on mechanical engineering, manufacturing engineering, or turbomachinery engineering.

Why UHart?

Our program was intentionally designed to provide you with the flexibility of advancing your education at your convenience. Working professionals will be able to obtain a master's degree by taking our evening classes on a part-time or full-time basis, either fully online or remote.

At CETA, time and balance are on your side.

Earn an MEng and MBA

E2M is a unique, three-way partnership between the Barney School of Business and the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture. Coursework includes applied projects, such as formulating marketing and business plans for area companies. The Engineering Applications Center assists local businesses and industries in applying new techniques, and you will become involved through application projects, symposia, and forums. You may complete either program and receive your degree immediately, without waiting to complete both.

This partnership between the Barney School of Business and the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture (CETA) provides a broader focus for engineers moving into management and leadership tracks. The program requires a total of 60 credits – that’s 6 fewer credits than if you pursued the degrees separately. Students can earn both a Master of Engineering (MEng) and Master of Business Administration (MBA) within the framework of Excellence in Engineering and Management (E2M) Program.

Master's in Mechanical Engineering

"UHart helped me become the best engineer that I can be. Mechanical engineering is such a broad and expansive field that it can be daunting to tackle and memorize it all. UHart has taught me how to think like an engineer: Have the ability to look at a problem and think through the conditions and plan out what the correct solution or next step is.”
