About the Mechanical Engineering Program
Mechanical engineering is the art of using analytical knowledge and problem-solving techniques to the design and manufacturing of objects, machines and mechanisms. Without mechanical engineering, we would not have things like engines, pumps, generators or air conditioners. The Mechanical Engineering program at Florida Tech has a strong technical curriculum that will give you the skills, tools and resources to understand the practical uses of math, science and engineering, and to learn mechanical engineering firsthand. Your professors will be there to help you in any way you need, due to Florida Tech’s small class sizes and welcoming environment. As the demand for innovative mechanical devices steadily grows, now is a great time to earn a degree in mechanical engineering!
From the first courses you take in the Mechanical Engineering undergraduate program at Florida Tech, you will receive a solid knowledge foundation in core math and science classes, as well as gain hands-on experience in engineering courses with labs, where you'll have an opportunity to build components or systems designed by you. All your classes will emphasize teamwork and collaborative problem solving, mandatory skills in today's engineering workplace. In your coursework, you will have the opportunity to master concepts such as:
- Calculus, Physics and Chemistry
- Applied Mechanics
- Computer-Aided Design (CAD)
- Dynamic systems
- Thermal sciences
- Electrical circuits
- Advanced mechanical design
Our FastTrack Program could let you earn a master's degree in mechanical engineering in just one additional year. The Mechanical Engineering program at Florida Tech is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
The mechanical engineering master's program at Florida Tech provides a course of study that advances engineers in their professional careers or prepares them for further study in a doctoral program.
Offered with both a thesis and a non-thesis option, a master’s in mechanical engineering gives graduates advanced knowledge in the analysis, design, and fabrication of machines, engines, products, and technologies. This multidisciplinary approach mimics the expertise and problem-solving capabilities that graduates are expected to have once in the workplace.
The mechanical engineering master’s program can be earned on either a full-time or part-time basis. Students in the master’s in mechanical engineering program must choose one of the following areas of specialization:
- Automotive Engineering
- Design and Manufacturing
- Dynamic Systems: Robotics and Controls
- Structures: Solid Mechanics and Materials
- Thermal Fluid Sciences
Students in Florida Tech’s Mechanical Engineering doctoral program experience an intimate learning environment where professors mentor and collaborate with students as professionals. Class sizes are small and the environment promotes innovative, independent thinking to develop graduates who are positioned for leadership.
