Designed for professionally employed engineers and scientists, the Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering increases each student’s knowledge and competence in modern analysis and synthesis techniques as they apply to engineering design.
Recognized nationally as a leader in experiential education, UNH offers an intensive, 30-credit master’s degree program in mechanical engineering. Take advantage of hands-on study both inside and outside of the classroom with studies in thermodynamics, computer-aided engineering, advanced fluid mechanics, system vibrations, and more. Course study is enhanced through a number of interactive, state-of-the-art facilities including our instrumentation laboratory, thermo/fluids laboratory, solar testing and training laboratory, and more. You will also have the opportunity to choose between a project or thesis option to complete your program with a focus on an area of research of your choosing. Because the Graduate School at UNH offers courses on a trimester schedule, you can complete the M.S. in Mechanical Engineering in as little as one year. You will also enjoy small, personalized classes with an average of 15 students per class.
Experience the Program with Hands-On Application
Mechanical engineering students can choose the topic for their research projects. A group of students recently opted for the highly relevant and newsworthy topic of renewable, alternative energy sources for their project. Their work explored solar heating of domestic hot water systems, wind turbine energy, and heat pipe theory as it relates to evacuated solar collectors.
Research & Teaching Assitantships
Well qualified graduate students can apply for research positions with mechanical engineering faculty. Current areas of research include: renewable energy systems, computational fluid dynamics, robotics, elasticity and dynamic systems. Teaching assistantships are also available to assist with undergraduate labs on mechanics, instrumentation and thermo fluids. Interested students can apply here.
