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 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.

View Current Program Requirements

The M.Eng. program is offered on-campus and via distance learning. Degree requirements for these programs are the same.

Degree Requirements (Admitted prior to fall 2019)

Degree Requirements (Admitted fall 2019 or later)

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.
