Prepare to thrive in the rapidly evolving fields of computer-aided design and manufacturing technologies in the continuous pursuit of quality products and shorter production cycles.

Our program carries a particular emphasis in PLM solutions for the collaborative data environment. Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is an integrated, information-driven approach to all aspects of a product’s life from design inception to manufacture, deployment, maintenance, and disposal at the end of its useful life.

When you graduate, you will have a Master of Engineering degree in Mechanical Engineering with an emphasis in Design and Manufacturing.

How to Apply

For admission as a regular graduate student, you must have an undergraduate degree from an accredited university in aerospace engineering, engineering mechanics, mechanical engineering, or a related field, such as physics or mathematics.

If you have a non-engineering degree, or an engineering degree other than aerospace, mechanical or engineering mechanics, your degree must have included the subject matter prerequisite for graduate study in aerospace engineering or engineering mechanics.

Want to get started now?

You may be able to take up to four courses (12 credit hours) as a non-degree graduate student, before you are accepted into a specific degree program.
