Graduate Certificate Programs
The Department offers two certificate programs: one in computer-integrated design, and one in energy engineering and management. They are designed to provide the necessary background for mechanical engineers to practice in the field covered by the certificate program. The program will offer an in-depth understanding of the issues that an engineer may encounter in practice.
- Computer-Integrated Design Graduate Certificate program
- Energy Engineering and Management Graduate Certificate program
5-year Dual Degree Program in Mechanical Engineering
The Department offers a 5-year dual degree program for the bachelor of science and master of science in all areas of mechanical and aerospace engineering. Learn more about the program.
Professional Degree Requirements
The professional degree program is designed for individuals who want in-depth study in their field beyond a master's degree, but who want to concentrate on applied subject material rather than on basic science. This post-master's program provides advanced study in preparation for pragmatic application and leads to the degree of Engineer or of Applied Scientist. Learn more about the program.
