This interdisciplinary option is well suited to those students who would like to become involved in emerging and developing areas. It provides the opportunity to develop expertise by taking a concentration of courses in another department or college across the University. Students can enhance their core mechanical engineering knowledge by taking six courses in our Department, while pursuing a desired concentration of four courses outside the Department. This option also includes concentrations of courses within the Department.  For some concentrations outside the Department, a certificate has already been approved. In addition to the concentrations of courses that have recently been developed, students may design their own concentrations to suit their specific interests and goals.

The aim of the following is to provide guidance to those MS students who would like to pursue a visible and coherent concentration of courses on a particular topic.

Core Curriculum
