The program utilizes the faculty and research facilities of the Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering to expose students to advanced and emerging technologies in mechanical and nuclear engineering. Research thrusts in the department include but are not limited to smart materials, micro/nanotechnology, energy conversion systems, sensors, aerosol science, nuclear engineering, fluid mechanics, medical devices, robotics and biomechanics.The M.S. degree program offers a thesis or non-thesis option and can be tailored to meet the individual student’s academic goals and research interests. Eighteen to 24 months of study usually are necessary to complete the requirements for the thesis-option M.S. in Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering. The non-thesis option generally requires 12 months of full-time study or up to four years of part-time study. A time limit of five calendar years, beginning at the time of first registration, is placed on work to be credited toward the master’s degree. Generally, a maximum of six credits of approved graduate course work required for a master’s degree may be transferred from another program at VCU or outside institution and applied toward the degree.
