Visit the official programme website for more information


The Mechanical Engineering Department offers graduate programs of instruction and research leading to the degrees of master of science (thesis and non-thesis options), and doctor of philosophy. 

Educational and research facilities are available to support graduate study in solid mechanics, experimental mechanics, electronic packaging and reliability, fracture and failure mechanics, robotics, vibrations, controls, dynamical systems, engineering design, additive manufacturing, friction-lubrication-wear, computer-aided design, fluid dynamics, transportation systems, conventional and renewable energy systems, thermal/fluid sciences, HVAC systems and nanotechnology applications.


The applicant of the Mechanical Engineering Master from Auburn University must hold a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent from an institution of recognized standing. If the applicant’s undergraduate degree is not closely related to mechanical engineering, an individualized plan of study will be developed to impart the critical skills inherent in the bachelor’s mechanical engineering program. 

This typically includes completing a prescribed number of core undergraduate mechanical engineering courses in addition to the graduate requirements.  All applicants must submit Graduate Record Examination scores for the General Test and will be evaluated on an individual basis by the Mechanical Engineering Graduate Committee.

Programme Structure

  • The degree requires 30 credit hours of 6000-7000 level courses including 6 credit hours of MECH 7990 and 9 credits of graduate engineering/science technical elective courses. 
  • A minimum of 15 credit hours of graded course work should be in mechanical engineering courses. 
  • Substitution of courses from other engineering/science disciplines is permitted with prior approval when appropriate courses are unavailable in mechanical engineering. 
  • All candidates must pass an oral defense of their written thesis including a comprehensive examination covering the major courses.
