The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering offers the degrees of Master of Science (thesis or nonthesis), Master of Engineering (thesis or nonthesis), Engineer, and Doctor of Philosophy in aerospace engineering and mechanical engineering. Minimum requirements for these degrees are given in the General Information section of this catalog. Additional information can be found at http://www.mae.ufl.edu/graduate. Prospective students are expected to have strong backgrounds in engineering. For the first year of study, each student is generally required to take a minimum of three regular courses each semester. There are three areas of specialization available for graduate studies: dynamics, systems, and control; solid mechanics, design, and manufacturing; thermal science and fluid dynamics. Within a specialization there are unique opportunities to conduct analytical, experimental, and/or numerical study in a wide variety of challenging problems. The Department offers a combined bachelor’s/master’s degree program. Contact the graduate coordinator for information.
