Professional Degree Program—The professional master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering (MME) is a non-thesis degree program intended for students who have completed a 4-year bachelor’s program in engineering and wish to join the workforce as practicing professionals, rather than pursuing a research oriented or academic career. It offers preparation in advanced engineering topics in order to enhance an engineer’s technical qualifications and increases competitiveness in the job market. The MME program is open to students who have shown academic excellence in their undergraduate studies. Students who have a BS or BA degree in any field of engineering or related study may apply, although some may need to fulfill prerequisites or take remedial courses to earn the MME degree. Students may enroll on a full or part-time basis. For the MME, degree students must complete 30 semester hours of course work at the 500 level or higher. Lists of required and suggested courses are available from the department. Students should develop a specific plan of study based on their particular interests and discussions with their advisor. Program Learning Outcomes for the MS and PhD Degree Graduates awarded the PhD in Mechanical Engineering will be able to: Apply the technical skills required by industrial and governmental organizations to solve mechanical engineering problems at an advanced level. Conduct research that demonstrates advanced mastery of a subfield within Mechanical Engineering. Communicate scientific ideas effectively in writing and when speaking. Understand and exhibit professional and ethical responsibility. Recognize the need to engage in life-long learning. Recognize and understand the role of leadership.
