The M.S. in Engineering with Mechanical Engineering Emphasis degree at the University of Georgia provides specialized expertise in mechanical engineering by providing a rigorous curriculum and innovative research in three distinctive areas: Design, Optimization and Manufacturing; Energy, Fluid and Thermal Systems; and Mechanics and Materials.  


About this Degree

The M.S. thesis program in Engineering with Mechanical Engineering Emphasis at the University of Georgia offers students the opportunity to conduct state-of-the-art research in a number of areas of pressing societal concern. The M.S. non-thesis program offers students added professional training through added coursework and engineering M.S. project completion.

The Design, Optimization and Manufacturing option provides a basis of study in product design and the process for building those products. The Energy, Fluid and Thermal Systems provides a basis for study of diverse topics such as energy or fluid power systems. Finally, the Mechanics and Materials provides the student with insight into methods for analyzing new materials and systems and how new products and technologies use these materials.
