Welcome to The J. Mike Walker '66 Department of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University!


The Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) in mechanical engineering is a 30-credit hour distance learning non-thesis graduate degree. This program provides advanced classroom instruction of greater depth than available in a Bachelor of Science degree. Master of Engineering students may choose to specialize in a technical area of interest or take courses across several technical areas.

Master of Engineering Requirements

Committee Requirements:

Master of Engineering students do not have a research committee. However, the degree plan system requires that each student list a committee chair. The committee chair for all M.Eng. students is the Graduate Program Director, Dr. Bryan Rasmussen.

Curricular Requirements:

  1. Required graduate level mathematics credit: MEEN 602: Modeling & Analysis of Mechanical Systems  (three credit hours)
  2. Technical Elective Courses: Nine courses — total of 27 credit hours
    1. Any graduate level MEEN course. It may include courses from the core course listing and a maximum of 3 hours of MEEN 684 and 685 combined. 
    2. Up to two graduate level courses outside MEEN, but within the College of Engineering or College of Science. Courses with the ENGR prefix or from outside the Colleges of Engineering or Science will require prior approval from the MEEN Graduate Program Director.
    3. May include up to one undergraduate courses at the 400 level.
