MSE in Mechanical Engineering (Part-time)

As one of the oldest and broadest fields of engineering, the mechanical engineering master’s programs offer you incredible flexibility to pursue your interests while the part-time nature of the program allows you to do so at your own pace.

Instructors are executive-level mechanical engineers who deepen your understanding of the fundamentals and introduce you to modern technologies and theories. Learn to use advanced analysis techniques, translate mechanical engineering problems into a quantitative form, and analyze experiments. You also have the option to take elective courses from other Engineering for Professionals programs—giving you the control to gain the precise knowledge you seek.

Admission requirements

  • Except as provided herein, applicants must be in the last semester of undergraduate study at or hold a bachelor’s or graduate degree from the US regionally accredited college or university. While there is no automatic prohibition of the admission of students from the US nationally accredited colleges or universities, EP retains the right to assess an applicant’s courses and/or degrees earned from one of those institutions to determine their academic readiness for the Program. Applicants who hold degrees from international institutions are encouraged to apply and must meet requirements found on EP’s International Applicants webpage.
  • Admitted students typically have earned a grade point average of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale (B or above) in the latter half of their undergraduate studies (when reviewing an application, the candidate’s academic and professional background will be considered).
  • Applicants must submit official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended.
  • No GRE is required. Should you choose to submit scores, use code 4655.

About the Program

The Master of Science in Engineering (MSE) is a flexible program that provides excellent preparation for doctoral studies or professional practice in mechanical engineering. 

Graduate students benefit from opportunities to take part in the cross-disciplinary collaboration across university divisions, giving them access to resources and expertise from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and Applied Physical Laboratory, as well the chance to partner on projects with industry, the federal government, and research institutions worldwide.

A focus area must be selected. While required to narrow your study, your focus area will not appear on your degree.

  • Biomechanics: Study the human body, modeled as a mechanical system. Apply fundamental mechanical engineering principles to explore the body’s structure and functions.
  • Advanced Manufacturing: Study the automation of design and manufacturing systems including computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided engineering (CAE), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), and robotics. Understand the relationships between process machinery, process conditions, and material properties.
  • Robotics and Controls: Study an array of aspects of robot motion planning including both rigid and compliant motion, coordinated motion, error detection and recovery, and motion in an unknown environment. Analyze the kinematics and dynamics of robotic manipulators.
  • Solids/Mechanics of Materials: Study the deformation and failure of mechanical structures as well as the different classes of engineering materials. Perform trade-off studies based upon design criteria including strength, toughness, corrosion resistance, manufacturability, and failure.
  • Fluid Mechanics and Thermal Science: Learn to solve practical engineering fluid flow problems. Examine laminar and turbulent flows, plus vorticity and circulation. Understand a variety of experimental methods.


Tuition fee: $49,200


Upon graduation, you will:

  • Master advanced techniques of analysis and modern tools.
  • Translate practical mechanical engineering problems into a quantitative form amenable to an analytical or numerical solution, or to experimental investigation.
  • Analyze, interpret, and apply the information obtained by experiment, computation, or analysis, or available in the literature.
  • Choose a specialization that best fits your area of interest.
  • Apply knowledge, facts, and theories immediately in your work outside the classroom.
