A minimum of 50% of courses for the Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering degree must be taken above the 5000G level.
Each candidate for the Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering Thesis Track degree must complete a thesis on a subject approved by the adviser. The major professor supervises the research, directs the writing of the thesis, and approves the thesis in its final form. Prior to the final approval, the thesis is read by the thesis committee. The thesis must be defended in an oral examination before an approved committee prior to final approval and sign-off.
The style and format for the completed thesis shall follow that prescribed by the Director for the Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering degree. Procedural steps in the preparation of the thesis are as follows:
- The prospectus for the thesis shall be submitted to the major professor and thesis committee for approval.
- The student must prepare the thesis for electronic submission following the latest version of the Electronic Thesis and Dissertation (ETD): Student Guide to Preparation and Processing manual.
- The thesis must be electronically submitted to the ETD site for format check by the ETD format check submission deadline as stated in the University Calendar.
- The final corrected thesis must be electronically submitted to the ETD site by the ETD format check submission deadline as stated in the University Calendar. The final document must be electronically approved by the Thesis Committee.
- Thesis will be announced and defended by calendar.
