The master of science and doctor of philosophy degrees in engineering mechanics are offered within a graduate program covering contemporary areas in both theoretical and applied mechanics. With the guidance of a major professor, a program can be designed to meet an individual student's needs and interests.
The Department of Engineering Physics offers two distinct master of science (M.S.) degree programs in Engineering Mechanics:
Engineering Mechanics M.S., Research – traditional master’s program culminating in a thesis for students with an undergraduate background in mechanics
Engineering Mechanics M.S., Fundamentals of Applied Mechanics Option – accelerated, for students with an undergraduate background in science, who would like to transition into engineering
