Master's programs, phd programs
The Mechanical Engineering graduate program is student-centered, providing high-quality instruction in both theory and the latest engineering developments. All our full-time faculty hold doctorates in engineering, and most bring significant industrial experience to the classroom. For the working person, all our classes are held in the late afternoon and evening. Many of our full-time graduate students obtain paid internships in local industry for one or two terms during their course of study.
There are 2 ways to gain admissions to the Master of Mechanical Engineering:
If you are a new Master students or Detroit Mercy undergrad students who did not qualify for the 5-year Bachelor/Master program, you may apply for graduate school either online. Typical (but not absolute) minimum requirements include an undergraduate GPA of 3.0 and a Bachelor degree in Mechanial Engineering or closely related discipline.
5-year Bachelor/Master Program
We offer a convenient way of earning your Bachelor of Engineering and Master of Engineering Engineering simultaneously.
If you are currently enrolled in the Bachelor of Engineering program, maintain a 3.25 GPA and are on target to graduate in four year, you may apply to the program.
Advantages of the 5-year program:
- Some courses during your senior year count towards both undergraduate and graduate requirements.
- Ability to take some graduate courses at the undergraduate tuition rate
- Some of your undergraduate financial aid is extended through your year of graduate study.
A full time student can usually finish the Master's degree within 8 months of the Bachelor's degree versus it may take other master's students more than a year to finish.
The doctoral program requires 51 credit hours of coursework beyond the engineering baccalaureate. Additionally, 30 credit hours of dissertation are required.
