Program Details

Michigan Technological University offers a Mechanical Engineering MS online for engineers. The curriculum emphasizes engineering mechanics coursework, such as continuum mechanics, composite materials, failure mechanics, and fluid mechanics. The degree is offered with a project component or as the Signature Master’s course work degree, which can be completed in one year.

During the program students learn about critical technologies for clean, efficient, and sustainable power systems and modeling of energy transport and conversion processes. They learn about nanofabrication and characterization, microfabrication processes, and bio-nanotechnology. Students also perform collaborative research at the interface of engineering disciplines such as dynamics, vibration, acoustics, signal processing and controls. Students gain a strong mathematical foundation that supports studies in material behavior under stress and aids in material failure analysis.

The program provides a wide range of challenging and rewarding courses of study with a heavy emphasis placed on graduate student participation in laboratory investigations, industrial projects, and interdisciplinary studies. The university provides extensive research laboratories on campus and at satellite locations. Research is focused in five key areas: advanced power systems, multi-scale sensors and systems, multidisciplinary engineering dynamic systems, mechanics of multi-scale materials, and space systems. The MS in Mechanical Engineering often has a strong application in industry or can serve as the foundation for at PhD in Mechanical Engineering.


Students must have a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent from an accredited institution
