Applicants are expected to have an undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering or a related field with a minimum 3.0 GPA in engineering and related science courses. The graduate advisor can admit students of lower GPA based on other achievements.
Students are required to complete a minimum of 30 credits, including a cohesive group of 12 to 15 credits in a field of concentration and two semesters of Mechanical Engineering Colloquium are required. A project is required and students are strongly encouraged to complete a formal thesis.
Areas of Specialization
The range of possible specializations is broad. Students should consult the graduate advisor in designing specialization and related degree requirements. With the approval of the graduate advisor students may take courses from other departments to enhance their areas of specialization.
If you have questions, you are invited to contact Dr. Zhiming Ji, graduate advisor.
