Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering

Students with appropriate undergraduate engineering degrees may apply for Baylor's Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (M.S.M.E.) program, Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering (M.S.B.M.E), or Master of Engineering (M.E). The M.S.M.E. and M.S.B.M.E. are a 30 semester-hour graduate programs comprising 24 hours of graduate course work and a 6-hour research-oriented thesis. The M.E. is a 33 semester-hour graduate program for students who are more practice-oriented. Prospective students are invited to review the research project areas in which our faculty and students are active.

There are three research focus areas within the Department of Mechanical Engineering:

  • Thermal and Energy Engineering (T.E.E.)
  • Natural and Advanced Materials Engineering (N.A.M.E.)
  • Biomechanics Experimentation, Design, and Simulation (B.E.D.S.)

The Master of Engineering Degree requires:

  • Course Work 33 (3-6 hours may be 5V97 project course with engineering applications)

The Master of Science Degrees require:

  • 24 semester hours of Course Work

  • 6 hours of Thesis (discovery-oriented)
