Our graduate admissions process has changed.

As of Sept. 6, 2018, the graduate admissions process has changed. Details about the new process can be found on the graduate admissions page.

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, Master of Engineering students are able to specialize in a technical area of interest. They are self-supported.

The Master of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering 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 three-ring binder or something similar.

Educational Outcomes

The assessed educational goals of the mechanical engineering graduate program are:

  1. Graduates will have the ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering,
  2. Graduates will have the ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems,
  3. Graduates will have the ability to communicate effectively,
  4. Graduates will have knowledge of contemporary issues and recognition of the need for lifelong learning, and
  5. 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. See more information on the portfolio assessment procedure.

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 601 – Advanced Product Design
  • MEEN 603 – Theory of Elasticity
  • 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

A M. Eng. student is required to take MEEN 602 — Modeling and Analysis of Mechanical Systems to satisfy their math requirement. Any othergraduate-levell math course will be reviewed and approved by the graduate program director on a case by case situation.

Distance Learning Courses:

The following courses are generally offered via distance learning annually:

  • MEEN 602: Modeling and Analysis of Mechanical Engineering Systems (fall/spring/summer)
  • MEEN 603: Theory of Elasticity (fall)
  • MEEN 613: Engineering Dynamics (fall)
  • MEEN 615: Advanced Engineering Thermodynamics (fall/spring)
  • MEEN 621: Fluid Mechanics (spring)
  • MEEN 651: Control System Design (fall)

The following courses are offered via Distance Learning on an annual or bi-annual basis, pending the availability of instructors:

  • MEEN 601: Advanced Product Design
  • MEEN 605: Compressible Flow
  • MEEN 611: Advanced IC Engines
  • MEEN 612: Mechanics of Robot Manipulators
  • MEEN 617: Mechanical Vibration
  • MEEN 626: Lubrication Theory
  • MEEN 633: Combustion Science and Engineering
  • MEEN 662: Energy Management in Industry
  • MEEN 663: Cogeneration Systems
  • MEEN 680: Optical Techniques for Engineers
  • MEEN 686: Composite Materials Processing and Performance
