The Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering degree program prepares the student for a successful professional career through advanced study in design, development, analysis, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems for a wide range of industries, including transportation, automation, medical, energy generation, electronic, sports and aerospace.

About

The program combines core mechanical engineering courses with technical electives that enable the student to increase his/her knowledge and competence in essential skills for Mechanical Engineering while affording sufficient freedom to provide in-depth study in both traditional and contemporary curriculum tracks and explore emerging interdisciplinary areas. 

The technical areas supported by the department include General Mechanical Engineering, Design Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering and Management, Mechanics and Materials, Thermal Fluid Systems and Sustainable Energy, Biomechanical Engineering, Mechatronics and Automation, and Sports and Aeronautical Engineering. The student is required to design an individualized program of study with the help and approval of his/her faculty advisor to meet his/her academic and career goals.

Customized study plans also allow receiving the Mechanical Engineering M.S. degree while pursuing another M. S. degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Technology Management, and MBA. Two degree students in these two programs should consult their respective advisors to work on their individualized plans.

The department is the home of the CNC Mini Milling Machine Laboratory, Computer Aided Engineering and Rapid Prototyping Laboratory, and the Applied Computational Fluid Dynamics Laboratory. Students can also access the other laboratories in the School of Engineering. Some classes are taught by adjunct faculty from local industries and faculty from other engineering departments at UB.

Learning Outcomes

Students in the M.S. Mechanical Engineering Program will be able to

  • demonstrate the ability to design or analyze a system, component or process to meet desired needs within realistic, contemporary constraints such as health and safety, ethics, performance, sustainability and economics.
  • develop specialized advanced skills in mechanical engineering fields including fluid mechanics, heat transfer, material science, dynamics, vibrations, numerical methods, design and manufacturing.
  • demonstrate the ability to use techniques, skills and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
  • demonstrate the ability to create, adapt, transfer and integrate existing and emerging technologies into new products, processes and services.
  • develop decision making, risk assessment and problem solving skills considering both economic and other constraints.
  • develop both technical and management oral presentation and written communication skills.
  • Programme Structure

    The M.S. degrees offered by the School of Engineering at the University of Bridgeport are classified by ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) degrees. Therefore, all International Students who earn an M.S. degree are eligible for twelve (12) months of OPT (Optional Practical Training) and at the end of the twelve months of OPT, the student and the company the student works for, can apply for an extension of seventeen (17) additional months of work, as long as the company is an E-verify company. In summary, a graduate with an M.S. degree can work under OPT in the U.S.A. for a total of twenty-nine (29) months.
