Master of Mechanical Engineering

Program mission statement

The Master of Mechanical Engineering (MME) Program is designed to provide engineering and science graduates with specialized technical knowledge oriented toward professional engineering practice in their field of interest within mechanical engineering. The program provides an opportunity to our undergraduate students as well as local professionals to acquire an advanced degree (master degree). For our undergraduate students, it can provide a fast track when they combine the MME and BSME degree.

Program goals, objectives and outcomes

Knowledge

  • The program includes advanced courses knowledge in the thermal/fluids, mechanics and controls areas of mechanical engineering.
  • The courses in the MME program are practice-oriented and designed to be an extension of the specialization begun with the undergraduate mechanical engineering senior electives.
  • With the necessary prerequisites, senior SMU undergraduate students can take master level courses as senior electives and begin to specialize their choice of specific disciplines in mechanical engineering practice.

Skills

  • Students will emerge with enhanced engineering analysis and design skills according to his or her professional objectives.
  • With the necessary prerequisites, senior SMU undergraduate students can take master level courses as senior electives and begin to specialize with specific skills in their choice of the mechanical engineering discipline.
