About

The Mechanical Engineering program of The University of North Carolina at Charlotte is broad based, allowing students to develop expertise in a number of areas including metrology, manufacturing, bioengineering, motorsports and automotive engineering, energy engineering, thermal and fluid sciences, solid mechanics, materials engineering and science, and mechanical control and instrumentation.

Overview

About the Program

The Mechanical Engineering program of The University of North Carolina at Charlotte requires successful completion of 30 credits at the graduate level. Both thesis and non-thesis options are available:

  • Thesis: The thesis option provides the students the opportunity to work on a research project that culminates in a published thesis.
  • Non-Thesis/Project: This option exposes students to the nature of true engineering work in the form of a single project-based course, and introduces the fundamental tools for project execution that will be expected in the workplace.

Research within the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Science is focused in six primary areas - manufacturing and metrology, computational mechanics and materials, motorsports engineering, bioengineering, thermal fluids science, and dynamics and controls. Within these areas, students pursue a variety of research topics that address design, manufacturing, metrology, thermal sciences and fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, biomedical engineering, materials engineering and science, and mechanical control and instrumentation. Students are encouraged to consider the variety of research and their interests as they progress in their degree program, choose an advisor, and develop their program of study.
