About

The Mechanical Engineering Technology program of the University of Houston builds upon our recognized mechanical baccalaureate degree, providing students with the highly developed expertise in design and analysis of mechanical systems.

Overview

About the Program

With state-of-the-art teaching and research laboratories, the Mechanical Engineering Technology program of the University of Houston offers courses and cutting-edge research experience in several applied areas including, instrumentation and measurement, advanced materials, mechanical design, manufacturing, automation, robotics, thermo-fluids, systems integration, oil and gas applications, and energy. Our students come from diverse undergraduate backgrounds including technology, engineering, computer science, mathematics, and the natural sciences.

The MS-MET students have three options:

  • Thesis option. Under the guidance of a research faculty member, the MS-MET students are encouraged to complete their degree with a thesis. This option is for those who plan to pursue a Ph.D. degree later. In the past, our talented students have received funded Ph.D. admission from recognized universities nationwide and around the world.
  • Project option. The MS-MET students have the option to replace the thesis with additional class-work and a faculty-mentored project. This option is for those who plan to work in the industry after graduation. The Houston metropolitan area has provided ample job opportunities for our graduate students.
  • Course-only option. The MS-MET students have the option to complete a master degree with 30 credit hours of regular courses only.

Throughout graduate training, individuals improve oral and written communication skills which helps to position them to be industry leaders in their fields of specialty.

We are also open to accept students who are working part-time or full-time in our local area. We provide flexible course schedule (mostly in the afternoon) and are seeking to add more online/hybrid courses to accommodate the student needs.
