|Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering|
The graduate program in Mechanical Engineering emphasizes global interdisciplinary collaboration and prepares graduates to lead in the creation, application and management of technology.
Areas of active research efforts within the department include:
- Acoustics and Vibration
- Air Pollution
- Automotive Engineering
- Computer-Aided Design
- Computer-Aided Manufacturing
- Fluid Dynamics and Theoretical Mechanics
- Fracture Mechanics and Failure Prediction
- Robotics and Control Theory
- Solid Mechanics and Design
- Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer
Laboratory facilities in the areas of acoustics, automation and robotics, automotive engineering, clean air vehicle research, computer-aided design, computer-aided manufacturing, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, and turbomachinery support research work. The department also maintains a separate modern, well-equipped computer graphics facility, the Alfred W. Fielding Computer-Aided Design Laboratory, with several state-of-the-art workstations; a computer-aided engineering laboratory; a networked personal computer laboratory; a Computational Fluid Mechanics Laboratory, with Silicon Graphics workstations; and a model shop for the construction of research and laboratory equipment.
Supporting facilities include the renowned Davidson Laboratory; the Stevens Computer Center with a six-processor Silicon Graphics Challenge minisupercomputer system and several Silicon Graphics and DEC workstations; a personal computer center equipped with high-speed, high-capacity computers; and the Samuel C. Williams Library.
|Degree of Mechanical Engineer|
Thirty credits beyond a master's degree are required for the Mechanical Engineer degree (with no more than three courses at the 500 level). A design project, ME 950 (12 credits), is a part of this 30 credits.
The degree candidate must also demonstrate professional competence by having at least two years of responsible engineering experience. This industrial experience is to be completed before entering the program or in the process of being satisfied upon entering the program.
Each candidate will be assigned an advisor. The candidates and their advisors will submit a study plan for approval to the departmental committee on the engineer degree. The plan must include descriptions of the required professional experience and the design project. There will be an oral presentation of the design project after the departmental committee has approved a written report.
It is assumed that you will already have the Master of Engineering degree in your concentration from Stevens, or its equivalent; otherwise, additional courses will be required.
