New Mexico State University’s Mechanical Engineering Department has been educating mechanical engineers since the university opened. The ME Department expanded to include an undergraduate degree program in Aerospace Engineering; the first and only Aerospace program in New Mexico and west Texas.


Why graduate school?

  • While entry level engineering requires only a bachelor’s degree, advancement hinges on a higher level of education and training. Master’s degree requirement is increasing in the engineering industry, and doctoral degrees continue to be essential for high level research as well as for academic teaching and research positions.
  • According to a Master’s in mechanical engineering can, in just the first five years, net you up to $36,000 more than your expectation for a BS entry level position.
  • An advanced degree enhances your potential for specialized focus areas.
