Mechanical Engineering

Concentrations and Course Listings

Below you will find a list of Mechanical Engineering graduate concentrations accompanied with a course listing for each concentration.

  • Applied Mechanics and Design - mechanics and design with emphasis on solid mechanics/stress analysis, biomechanics, vibrations
  • Dynamic Systems and Acoustics – multiphysics phenomena, microstructural vibrations, MEMS/NEMS, novel acoustic measurement techniques, noise control, microscale vibrations and acoustics;
  • Energy - storage, small-scale harvesting, flexible devices.
  • Materials Science and Engineering - materials characterization, microstructure/property relationships, thin films, computational materials, interfacial phenomena, functional materials, materials processing;
  • Transport Phenomena - heat and mass transfer in biological/environmental/industrial applications, microfluidics/nanofluidics, complex fluids, interfacial phenomena/wetting
