Master’s in Mechanical Engineering – Marshall University

The Master’s in Mechanical Engineering degree is designed to provide students with the knowledge, skill, and professional practices needed to develop and design mechanical engineering related systems. The program also prepares students who desire to pursue further graduate work leading to a Doctorate degree.

The course integrates in-depth knowledge of core areas in mechanical engineering such as mechanics, thermal science, materials and manufacturing, control systems, and product design and development with advanced study in computing and physical sciences. This integration is critical for multidisciplinary areas such as bio and manufacturing engineering, robotics, nanotechnologies, and energy systems. Tools ranging from computer simulation and systems modeling to advanced experimental techniques are developed and applied in order to provide a profounder understanding of fundamental phenomena, processes, and system characteristics in these areas.
