Mechanical Engineering M.Eng. (Ithaca)

Field of Study

Mechanical Engineering

Program Description

The M.Eng. (Mechanical Engineering) degree program is a one-year (two semester) course of study for those who wish to develop a higher level of competence in engineering science, current technology, and engineering design. The program is geared toward students who wish to work in industry after graduation, entering at a higher and more focused level.  The program is designed to be flexible so that candidates may concentrate on one or a combination of focus areas. These focus areas include biomechanics, design, energy, engineered materials, robotics, simulation and analysis, and spacecraft engineering (see also Aerospace Engineering M.Eng.).

The program’s flexibility allows students to build an individualized program of courses. Students are required to complete 30 credits of work at the graduate level.  Each student’s curriculum includes a major design project along with a combination of technical courses.  Students may also take one or two professional development courses to build complementary skills.

Design projects have a mechanical engineering design or application focus. The projects may arise from individual faculty and student interests or from collaboration with industry. All projects are done under the close supervision of a faculty member or industrial partner.
