Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering
The UT Tyler Department of Mechanical Engineering offers the master of science in mechanical engineering degree, providing advanced levels of mechanical engineering education and research. The program is broad-based, allowing students to develop expertise in a number of areas ranging from design, manufacturing, thermal and fluid sciences to solid mechanics and mechanical control and instrumentation.
The mechanical engineering MS degree program is flexible to accommodate students with bachelor's degrees in other closely related engineering majors. The program is structured and scheduled to serve both full-time and part-time graduate students, and to serve the continuing education needs of practicing engineers. Most mechanical engineering graduate courses are designed to integrate independent research and engineering practice into the course contents. Students with bachelor's degrees in physics or mathematics will need at least two full years of leveling courses before they can take graduate courses in the MSME program.
Graduates of the UT Tyler program can be employed by private sectors and government agencies to serve as group leaders, principal engineers, managers and R&D technical staff. Students can also plan course selection in preparation for doctoral degree programs in mechanical or other engineering disciplines.
