Mechanical Engineering at University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC)

The department offers an Accelerated Program for students who wish to combine their undergraduate studies with a master’s degree and thesis. Graduate certificates in Mechatronics and in Computational Thermal/Fluid Dynamics consist of a sequence of four graduate courses in a specific technical area. Credits from a graduate certificate apply to the M.S. degree program.

Programme Structure

  • The M.S. program focuses on providing students advanced training in the fundamental sciences and technology of Mechanical Engineering to enable them to pursue careers in applied research and development in government laboratories or advanced technology firms.  The M.S. degree can also be a stepping-stone to the Ph.D. degree.  Generally, the M.S. degree can be earned in three to four semesters full-time, or pursued on a part-time basis.
  • The M.S. program has a thesis and a non-thesis option.  All full-time students are encouraged to take the thesis option.  This is the preferred program of study for those interested in careers in advanced research or plan to continue for a doctoral degree.  The non-thesis option may be more appropriate for part-time students or those pursuing careers in industry.
