Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering
Worcester Polytechnic Institute

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 gain essential skill sets in analysis, design, and manufacturing.

Students have the opportunity to learn how 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


  • Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering or a related field
  • Official transcripts from all colleges or universities attended
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • Statement of purpose
