The graduate Mechanical Engineering program from the Indiana University - Purdue University Indianapolis leading to the MS in ME degree is organized into four areas of study. 


We offer a master degree in Mechanical Engineering at the Indiana University - Purdue University Indianapolis. The Solid Mechanics, Biomechanics and Design Track is for students interested in the study of solids, stress analysis, kinetics, vibration, structural mechanics, biomechanics including musculoskeletal systems, joint mechanics, dental mechanics, medical instrumentation, and design. 

The Fluid and Thermal Sciences Track is for students interested in heat transfer, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and computational fluid dynamics.

Key Features 

  • The Energy and Materials Track is for students interested in this broad field of engineering that deals with energy efficiency, energy services, facility management, environmental compliance and alternative energy technologies.
  • The Mechatronics and Controls Track is for students interested in the study of mechanical systems, electro-mechanical systems, control theory, micro-controllers, sensors, and actuators. 
  • The Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at IUPUI offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs that prepare students for careers in a global economy and is recognized locally, nationally, and internationally for the quality of its programs and graduates.
  • IUPUI is a distinctive combination of the best of Indiana’s two major universities: Purdue University and Indiana University.
