Program Objectives

  1. 1.To provide mechanical engineers with the opportunity to further develop their knowledge and skills in mechanical engineering so that they can adapt very quickly to technological changes in the workplace.
  2. 2. To produce graduates with the ability to practice their profession with advanced skills or to continue for upper doctoral studies.
  3. 3. To prepare graduates for personal and professional success, both as individuals and in team environments..

Admission Requirements

Admission to the MS in Mechanical Engineering program is subject to the graduate admission requirements of the university as stated in the catalog under “Graduate Admission”. In addition, the following requirements are to be met:

  1. 1.Bachelor of Engineering degree in mechanical engineering or its equivalent from a recognized university (holders of BS degrees in mechanical engineering will have to take a set of remedial courses to be specified on a case by case basis in order to meet the total number of credits required);
  2. 2.Cumulative GPA of 3.0 minimum (or its equivalent from a recognized faculty of engineering);
  3. 3.GRE Scores
  4. 4.Approval of the Faculty Graduate Committee

Furthermore, applicants should be able to demonstrate proficiency in the English language. All English requirements, as stated in the catalog under “Graduate Admission”, are to be fulfilled.

Graduation Requirements

The program leads to the degree of Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering awarded once the following requirements are fulfilled:

  1. 1.The candidate must complete a total of 30 credits with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0/4.0. All courses are to be passed with a minimum of B grade as per rules and regulations concerning graduate studies at NDU. Failed courses may be repeated once provided that the grade on the failed course is equal to D or higher. Failing a course with an F grade means an automatic exclusion from the program.
  2. 2.Holders of a bachelor of engineering in mechanical engineering (5-year program leading to the degree of BE) from a recognized university may apply to transfer a maximum of twelve credits from their undergraduate upper level courses equivalent to 500-level mechanical engineering courses at NDU. Only courses with a B grade can be considered for transfer.
  3. 3.The candidate must attend a series of 0-carrying credit seminars as recommended by the Graduate Committee of the Faculty. The course grading is based on attendance and is pass or fail.
  4. 4.The residency requirements and maximum load per semester are as per rules and regulations for graduate programs at Notre Dame University-Louaize.
