Mechanical Engineering Program Overview
Pursuing a master’s degree helps you gain specialized knowledge to advance in your field. Not only could it open opportunities for you professionally, but it will increase your earning potential in an already competitive marketplace.
The Mechanical Engineering MS offers coursework in the areas of Aerospace, Dynamics and Controls, Solid Mechanics, and Thermal/Fluid Science. Students choose one of three plan options to complete the degree. All graduate students must complete School of Graduate Studies' (RGS) forms and requirements for their chosen plan.
You don’t have to be an experienced researcher to purse a PhD. Research topics could include solids, thermal fluids, dynamics and control, and even aerospace. Mechanical engineering is a very broad and diverse engineering discipline. We offer PhD programs from a BS or an MS degree.
The Mechanical Engineering PhD may be started from a bachelor's or master's degree. If starting from a bachelor's, students may opt to complete a MS Plan C on the way to the PhD. Mechanical Engineering courses are offered in the areas of Aerospace, Dynamics and Controls, Solid Mechanics, and Thermal/Fluid Science. All graduate students must complete School of Graduate Studies' (RGS) forms and requirements. All PhD students must complete USU 6900 Research Integrity, which documents the completion of the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) requirements.
