Civil and Mechanical Engineering

Master of Science in Engineering

The Master of Science in Engineering (M.S.E.) with area of specialization in Mechanical Engineering is designed to help students sharpen their engineering skills, grow professionally, and stay on top of recent developments in the field.  Our MSE degree prepares students for the future by broadening and deepening their understanding of engineering principals, state-of-the-art technology, and technical management.  Our MSE equips students to succeed in our rapidly-changing world and positions them to become senior engineering professionals or technical managers.

Our graduate program is designed for working engineers taking one or two courses each semester.  However, full time students can also be accommodated, as they can take additional classes in systems engineering, organizational leadership & supervision, math & statistics, and engineering technology.  In addition, on-line classes from Purdue WL can be taken at a reduced tuition rate.  All students are encouraged to conduct research and write a thesis.  Research is a high-impact, transformational activity that benefits industry, students, and our program.   Industry-sponsored research projects are ideal.  A non-thesis MSE option is also available.

Most courses are offered in the evening to meet the needs of both full-time students and working adults.

Prospective and current mechanical engineering students please review our program requirements. Students can apply to be admitted via Purdue University Graduate Application Web site.

Combined BSME/MSE Program

This combined five-year BSME/MSE Program in the Department of Civil and Mechanical Engineering (CME) at IPFW is an integrated five-year degree program in which qualified students can receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering and Master of Science in Engineering (MSE) degree with area of specialization in Mechanical Engineering. Students enrolled in this program can take up to nine (9) credits (three 500-level or higher graduate courses) from the graduate courses approved as BSME Technical Electives in five-year BSME/MSE Program. These courses will also be counted towards the MSE program, thereby reducing the overall time required for the MSE degree completion. Prospective mechanical engineering students please review our Admission and Degree Requirements.

If you wish to take an engineering graduate level course without enrolling in the degree program please follow the Registration Procedure for a Graduate Course.

If you have questions feel free to contact Prof. Abu-Mulaweh, Director of the Department of Civil and Mechanical Graduate Program.
