Mechanical Engineering Graduate Program Admissions


We are excited that you are considering our Graduate Program. We offer admission to the M.S. and Ph.D. programs. The Ph.D. program is intended for students that wish to pursue a research-oriented career, while the M.S. program is intended for students seeking advanced positions in the industry. Admission to the Ph.D. program is more competitive than the M.S. program.


To apply for Graduate Studies in Mechanical Engineering, you must fill out and send online application. Please note that there may be more steps involved than simply filling out the form online.



Admission Requirements for a M.S. or Ph.D.


1.     A bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering, or related field such as another engineering discipline, a physical science, or mathematics.

2.     A grade average of at least B or equivalent in all engineering, mathematics and science courses.

3.     Completion and submission of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) General Test.

4.     Students who indicate that their first or native language is not English are required to achieve a minimum TOEFL score of 85 for general admission and 90 for admission to a doctoral program and to be eligible for consideration for GA/TA support.  Master's students that have completed a degree program from a U.S. institution may be eligible for a TOEFL waiver and need to request the waiver from our Graduate Program Director. All PhD applicants with a TA stipend whose native language is not English must demonstrate a sufficient level of English-speaking proficiency (TOEFL Speaking score) and may be required to take ESL courses based on these measures.

  • •  Spring Admission: January 15


Financial Support


Admitted Ph.D. students are typically offered financial support in the form of teaching or research assistantships, which include full tuition. Admission into this program is very competitive, though, and you must have the intention of completing this program.
