  • Admission Information:
  • Applications to the Mechanical Engineering Graduate School are accepted from persons who have completed, or will have completed by the time they arrive, a Bachelor's degree. Most incoming students will have a degree in mechanical engineering, ocean engineering, or some related branch of engineering. However, the department's admission criteria are not specific, and capable students with backgrounds in different branches of engineering or in science may gain entry.

    Applications are typically available from late July through December each year.

    Remember that the application deadline for Mechanical Engineering is December 15. Please note that applications are only reviewed for Fall Term admissions.

    Your application packet should include:

    The completed application form.
    Your Statement of Objectives.
    Three letters of recommendation.
    Up-to-date transcript(s).
    GRE results - general test only (see below).
    IELTS (preferred) or TOEFL (phased out by 2010) results for non-English primary language applicants

  • Financial Aids:
  • The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers three types of financial assistance to graduate students: research assistantships, teaching assistantships, and fellowships. The majority of students in the ME department are supported by research assistantships (RA). Research assistants are appointed by faculty members to perform research on a well-defined project typically sponsored by an external agency (e.g., NSF, DOD, DOE, NIH, Industry,…). The research is almost always structured so that it constitutes a major part of the student's SM or PhD thesis. A full time RA appointment provides a full tuition scholarship (i.e. covers tuition) plus a stipend.
