Program Overview

The University of Florida’s Master of Science in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, with a concentration in Thermal Fluids Transport, is delivered through the university’s College of Engineering and administered under the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. This program’s primarily distance learning delivery was designed for working professionals in mind who wouldn’t normally have the freedom to pursue a traditional graduate degree on-campus due to family, location, or work commitments.

The Thermal Fluids Transport concentration’s core curriculum consists of ten courses, or 30 credits, and doesn’t require students to write a thesis. Cohorts begin every August, and the duration of the program is approximately 22 months long. Under the broader Master of Science in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering curriculum, students will learn to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems. Students should also emerge from the program being able to critically read and analyze engineering literature. The university offers three different concentrations under this umbrella degree, intended to allow students to pursue the specific area in which they were the most personally and professionally interested by. Upon successful completion of this program’s diverse and thorough curriculum, students may possess all of the knowledge and skills necessary to have a successful career in the field of Thermal Fluids Transport.
