In the Department of Mechanical Engineering, you'll work extensively with the tools you need to succeed across many different engineering industries, such as automotive, aerospace, shipping, power, heating and cooling, and machinery‚ as well as the new and emerging fields of robotics, micro-devices and nano-devices, and medical equipment.
The master's program in mechanical engineering provides students with opportunities to strengthen their technical backgrounds for pursuing successful professional careers in engineering research, development and management.
Our program is distinguished by its opportunities to work closely with faculty. Graduate students have the chance to collaborate with and learn from some of the most renowned experts in the country, all while seamlessly transitioning from graduate studies to a full-time career.
Applicants do not declare a thesis or non-thesis option upon submitting their application. After matriculation, a thesis option may be selected with the support of a faculty advisor.
Common research areas include:
The School of Engineering's Graduate Cooperative Education (Co-Op) Program provides students with the opportunity to apply the theoretical principles they have learned in their coursework to real-world engineering projects. Gain up to six months of full-time work experience, build your resume, and develop a competitive advantage for post-graduation employment. Learn more about the Co-Op Program.
Mechanical engineers participate in every phase of the research and development process. Regardless of what industry you're in, you'll invent, analyze, and manufacture mechanical components and systems to help solve a particular problem or create a new product.
With an MS from Tufts School of Engineering, you'll graduate with a high level of comfort working in computational design and simulation tools‚ allowing you to apply the principles of your mechanical engineering degree to virtually any field. That's the beauty of mechanical engineering. Countless industries need designers and thinkers with a systems background in solving complex engineering problems‚ and that's exactly what you'll offer.
Careers for graduates include:
A key admission requirement is strong academic background in mechanical engineering or a related technical discipline.
