Mechanical Engineering M.S./M.Eng.

Admission Requirements

A bachelor of science degree in mechanical engineering is normally required for admission to the graduate program in mechanical engineering.

Students from other disciplines may also be interested in graduate studies in Mechanical Engineering. However, in order to be properly prepared for graduate level coursework, these students must have taken the equivalent of the UNH Mechanical Engineering undergraduate required core courses, which are listed  in the graduate course catalog.

Students who are deficient in three or fewer courses may be admitted to the Department on a provisional basis. Students who are deficient in more than three courses must apply and enroll as an undergraduate student until they meet the core course requirement. It is Department policy that engineering courses taken as part of an Engineering Technology program are generally not considered equivalent to any of the courses listed in the undergraduate course catalog. The decision on equivalence for any courses taken at an institution other than UNH is at the discretion of the Graduate Committee of the Mechanical Engineering Department.

  • All full-time graduate students are required to attend a weekly M.E. Graduate Seminar and make one presentation per year.
  • All applicants are required to submit scores from the general test of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). Note: The GRE test is waived for ME alumni and current UNH students with a GPA of 3.0 or above.

Accelerated Master's Program

Students with a 3.2 cumulative grade-point average can apply for early admission to the UNH Graduate School during their junior year. Early admission allows students to receive dual graduate credit for three 700/800 level CEPS technical elective courses (up to 12 credits) taken during their final year.
