Mechanical Engineering Courses

Admission Requirements

The Mechanical Engineering accepts applications throughout the academic year. Only complete applications are considered for admission and graduate assistantships. Our application process is very competitive. For full admission, a GRE total score (verbal and quantitative) a minimum of 294 (master's) or 307 (doctoral) is required. Applicants must also submit a statement of purpose that should include your expected area of study.  International applicants are also required to complete the TOFEL (Test of English as Foreign Language). TOFEL scores a minimum score of 577 on the written exam or 90 on the Internet-based test (iBT) is required.

Financial Aid

Financial support for qualified graduate students is available mainly in the form of research and teaching assistantships. A limited number of assistantships are available to highly qualified candidates. All assistantships require course work and research activities that are usually coincident with the MS thesis or PhD dissertation topic. Students obtaining support in conjunction with a grant are obligated to perform research which will help meet the obligations of the principal investigator to the funding agency.

Research Facilities

The Department of Mechanical Engineering conducts research in many areas including aerodynamics, computational fluid dynamics, wind energy, heat transfer, gasification, biomaterials, composite materials, continuum mechanics, computational material science, materials reliability, mechanical behavior of materials, and nanomechanics of surfaces and interfaces.
