A Tartan aims for the moon
When Lawrence Papincak earned his master's degree in mechanical engineering, his dreams for the future were out of this world. Today, he is a research engineer at Blue Origin in the Advanced Development Program - Flight Sciences group where he is working on navigation systems for NASA moon missions.
- Graduate programs
In addition to our Ph.D. program, we offer three master's programs to fit your academic and professional goals. Are you looking for a research-intensive program? Would you prefer to pursue a technical concentration (design and manufacturing of mechanical systems, energy and thermal fluid systems, or robotics and control systems)? Or, does a one-year program best suit your needs? Learn more about each program before applying.
- Undergraduate program
Our undergraduate program in mechanical engineering prepares students for their individual career paths and fosters the ability to adapt to the rapidly changing technologies faced by today's engineers.
