Graduate Programs

The department of Mechanical Engineering offers degree programs at both the master’s and doctoral levels. The department offers studies leading to specialization in the following six concentrations:

  • fluid and thermal science
  • mechanics
  • materials science
  • design and manufacturing
  • dynamic systems and control
  • ocean engineering

An accelerated B.S./M.S. option allows students to combine their undergraduate and graduate work to obtain an advanced degree in a condensed timeframe.  UNH students can apply for early admission to the UNH Graduate School during their senior year. Students who apply are required to have a 3.2 cumulative grade-point average. Early admission allows students to receive dual graduate credit for three 700 level CEPS courses (up to 12 credits) taken for their senior year. For more information, the students should contact the Graduate Program coordinator, Prof. Yannis Korkolis and go to the Graduate School website.


Graduate Student Advisory Board:

The department established its first Graduate Student Advisory Board (GSAB) in the fall 2017 semester. The purpose of the board is to document feedback from students and help improve the graduate program.
