Master of Engineering

The Master of Engineering (M. Eng.) in Mechanical Engineering provides advanced classroom instruction of greater depth than available in a Bachelor of Science degree.  Also, students are able to specialize in a technical area of interest. M. Eng. students are self-supported.

The Master of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering (M. Eng.) degree consists of 30 credit hours of graded coursework from the College of Engineering or the College of Science. A minimum of 24 classroom hours in Mechanical Engineering is needed. Three hours of MEEN 684 or MEEN 685 may be used if desired. Classroom courses must include MEEN 602 — Modeling and Analysis of Mechanical Systems and 21 MEEN classes. Of the remaining two elective courses, students may select from MEEN 684 or 685 or any other courses in The College of Engineering or The College of Science.

Program Required Portfolio:

Students will prepare a portfolio for assessment. The portfolio will be compiled over the student’s course of study at Texas A&M University. In general, the portfolio will consist of graded materials from classes or research activity that can be evaluated and assessed against the five educational outcomes. The portfolio should be contained in a 3 ring binder or similar.

Educational Outcomes

The assessed educational goals of TAMU MEEN Graduate Program are

A. Graduates will have the ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering,

B. Graduates will have the ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems,

C. Graduates will have the ability to communicate effectively,

D. Graduates will have knowledge of contemporary issues and recognition of the need for lifelong learning, and

E. Graduates will have the ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice

Program Required Project: A graded project/report with an “A” or “B” grade from any course on the degree plan can be used to fulfill this requirement.

Core Courses — A Master of Engineering student may choose to take any of the following 10 designated core courses. Core Courses are optional, not required.

  • MEEN 603– Theory of Elasticity
  • MEEN 607– Polymer Physical Properties, or MEEN 635– Flow and Fracture of Polymeric Solids
  • MEEN 608– Continuum Mechanics
  • MEEN 613– Engineering Dynamics
  • MEEN 615– Advanced Engineering Thermodynamics
  • MEEN 617– Mechanical Vibrations
  • MEEN 621– Fluid Mechanics
  • MEEN 630– Intermediate Heat Transfer
  • MEEN 651– Control System Design
  • MSEN 601– Fundamental Materials Science Engineering

A M. Eng. student is required to take MEEN 602 — Modeling and Analysis of Mechanical Systems to satisfy their math requirement. Any other graduate level math course will be reviewed and approved by the Graduate Program Director on a case by case situation.
