MS Degree Requirements
The MS (thesis) degree emphasizes graduate research and culminates in the creation of a thesis and associated oral defense. A minimum of 30 graduate credits must be earned for the MS degree with the following requirements:
|GR ST 565: Responsible Conduct of Research in Science and Engineering||1|
|Mechanical Engineering Core
Any 500 or above level ME course as well as specific non-ME courses approved by the graduate committee. These courses are grouped according to disciplinary area emphasis to help student decide which courses to take based on interest.
Any 300-level or higher Math or Statistics class labeled “non-major graduate credit” (EXCEPT Math 307 and Math 317) will count towards this requirement. Non-Math/Stat courses with strong math or statistics content that are approved by the graduate education committee may also count towards this requirement. See approved courses.
Choose any courses that you feel would round out your education; these can be from Mechanical Engineering or outside the major.
