Master of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering

The Master of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering (M.Eng.ME) program is a professionally oriented master’s degree program that provides advanced knowledge and experiential opportunities beyond that of a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. The M.Eng.ME program is coursework-based, industry-oriented, and offers three tracks of study around which students may choose to design their curriculum: Design, Energy, and Manufacturing. Alternate tracks of study may be pursued with the approval and guidance of the M.Eng.ME faculty advisor. 

The M.Eng.ME program allows students to earn a graduate degree in this highly sought-after field within one of the world’s most prestigious and largest engineering institutions: The Grainger College of Engineering at Illinois. Renowned faculty and exceptional students are drawn to Illinois because of our global reputation.
