Program description

Mechanical Engineering

Gain an edge in today’s competitive marketplace by developing your analytic and strategic skills and learning how to apply them in fields that are growing in our region and around the world.

The objective of the Clarkson Mechanical Engineering program is to expand your understanding and application of solid mechanics, thermal fluid systems, materials and energy systems and advance your career opportunities in power systems, emerging energy technologies and product design evolution. As a student, we encourage you to consider MBA electives and non-technical courses to integrate business skills that complement your technical expertise.

We offer an MS degree in mechanical engineering both at the Capital Region Campus and in Potsdam, N.Y. Capital Region courses take place in the evening, while courses in Potsdam are typically held during the day.

Admission requirements


Students must have a BS in engineering or equivalent field. Applications from students from other disciplines will be handled on a case-by-case basis. Students who are not fully prepared to pursue graduate work in mechanical engineering may be required to take additional courses for which graduate credit will not be given.

A complete application file consists of the following items:

  • application form
  • resume and statement of purpose
  • letters of recommendation — three letters required
  • official transcripts
  • test scores — GRE* and TOEFL/IELTS (if applicable)

*GRE is waived for Clarkson graduates. GRE scores may also not be needed for applicants with work experience, graduate degrees or other practical/applied skill sets. The GRE is not required for applicants to the Capital Region Campus MS program.
