The degree of Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering offered at the University of Oklahoma usually requires the completion of an original research thesis in addition to coursework beyond the baccalaureate level.


Thesis program

The traditional research-oriented Mechanical Engineering offered at the University of Oklahoma program with thesis emphasizes an advanced study and research experience that is particularly suited to prepare students for research and development careers in the industry or the government and for further graduate studies. To be eligible for the research option, a student must have identified an appropriate research area and be accepted as an M.S. thesis student by a member of the AME graduate faculty.

Non-Thesis program

The coursework-emphasis plan is designed to meet the professional needs of part-time students and other students whose background and educational goals may be best served by additional instructed study in lieu of the research investigation involved in an M.S. thesis. To pursue this plan-of-study, students must indicate interest in the coursework-emphasis program on the application for admission. After admission, these students are encouraged to identify faculty members who will serve as their academic M.S. program advisers or they may complete the program under the overall guidance of the Graduate Liaison. The non-thesis M.S. program culminates in a comprehensive examination.

Programme Structure

  • at least 18 hours of AME courses at the 5000 level or higher. These may include up to 3 hours of Special Projects and up to 3 hours of Guided Independent Studies.Students who elect a two-hour laboratory course may include 1 additional hour in either of these individual instruction enrollments.
  • at least 3 hours or more of graduate-level coursework in mathematics and advanced engineering analysis.
  • up to 12 hours of approved graduate-level courses chosen from other fields of engineering,the physical sciences, and mathematics, or AME courses.
