The Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering, Plan A is ideal for students who are interested in advancing their career in industry or research. The program combines valuable classroom instruction with research experiences. Students conduct research under the supervision of a faculty advisor, often the Principal Investigator (P.I.), for a government or industry sponsored project. The student’s research, in conjunction with thesis credits and coursework, will culminate in an article for submission to a peer-reviewed journal and a final thesis.
