About

The Mechanical Engineering program of Rochester Institute of Technology is a focused, in-depth examination of mechanical engineering disciplines (e.g., dynamics, robotics, nanotechnology, biomechanics, and energy systems)  that prepare you to enter a career in industry or research.

Overview

The Mechanical Engineering program of Rochester Institute of Technology produces graduates who are leaders in their respective fields who are ready to tackle high-level problems as practicing professionals. Designed for students who desire advanced training in specific areas of mechanical engineering, the master of science acts as a prelude to a career in either research or industry. Students can choose to focus on a variety of disciplines including dynamics, robotics, nanotechnology, biomechanics, energy systems, or more.

The MS degree in mechanical engineering consists of a minimum of 30 credit hours (24 credit hours of course work and 6 credit hours of thesis). A limited number of credit hours may be transferred from graduate courses taken outside the university, provided such courses complement a student’s proposed graduate program in the mechanical engineering department. An adviser will review course work for possible transfer credit. Upon matriculation into the MS program, the student should formulate a plan of study in consultation with an advisor.
