Program Details

The online MS in Mechanical Engineering degree program from Worcester Polytechnic Institute is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to push the boundaries of analysis, design, and manufacturing. Students learn to:

  • Perform detailed stress analysis to create designs that are both structurally robust and cost-effective
  • Select materials to maximize functionality and performance while minimizing costs
  • Model the kinematics and dynamics of complex multi-axial mechanical systems for more efficient and reliable designs
  • Execute advanced analyses of fluid dynamics to improve process efficiency and properly size the components of a fluid system
  • Produce designs which are optimized for manufacturing so that they can be made more quickly at lower cost


  • Transcripts from all colleges or universities attended, and official proof of a completed Bachelor's degree before matriculating
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • Statement of purpose
