The Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (MSME) program is a 30 semester-hour graduate program that is offered in both fully online version and on-campus formats. 


The online version of the programs allows full-time engineers and technical professionals to complete a degree program while continuing to work full time.  The on-campus format allows students the option of a face-to-face alternative. Both delivery methods afford the identiacl rigorous curriculum and program objectives. The MSME program will enable students to gain an advanced understanding of principles and applications in mechanical engineering.
