The M.Eng. (Engineering Mechanics) degree program is a one-year (two semester) course of study for those who wish to develop a higher level of competence in engineering science, current technology, and engineering design. The program is geared for students who wish to work in industry after graduation, entering at a higher and more focused level.
Students in this program will deepen and broaden their knowledge of mechanics as applied to different material systems. The course work centers on additional study of solid mechanics, fracture mechanics, materials and computational methods widely used in industries (e.g., the finite element method).
The program’s flexibility allows students to build an individualized program of courses. Students are required to complete 30 credits of work at the graduate level (of which at least 28 credits must have letter grades). Each student’s curriculum includes a 4 to 8 credit design project and a minimum of 12 technical credits in engineering mechanics or a closely related field. The remaining credits can consist of additional technical or engineering tool courses and/or professional development courses.
Design projects have a engineering mechanics design or research focus. The projects may arise from individual faculty and student interests or from collaboration with industry. All projects are done under the close supervision of a faculty member or industrial partner.
