Mechanical Engineering Master of Engineering Program

The Master of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering (M.Eng.ME) degree is a professional master’s degree that provides in-depth technical knowledge beyond that of a bachelor’s degree, and which is designed to be customized to each student’s career interests. The M.Eng.ME program allows students to earn a graduate degree in a highly sought-after major from one of the world’s top engineering institutions.

M.Eng.ME students take many of the same courses as our MS and PhD students, with the option to complete the degree at an accelerated pace or schedule courses around an existing career. Among the many benefits of this flexible timeline to degree is our students’ ability to improve professional marketability and future promotion potential and set their careers on a higher-arcing trajectory, either because they spend as little as 1 year adding an internationally-recognized degree to their résumés, or because there is no interruption in their existing careers as they pursue an advanced degree.

The College of Engineering at Illinois is among the world’s most prestigious and largest engineering institutions, with undergraduate and graduate programs ranked in the top five nationally and internationally. Renowned faculty and exceptional students are drawn to Illinois because of our global reputation for leadership in research and education. The Illinois experience is a distinctive combination of academic rigor within a uniquely Midwestern culture of collaboration and approachability.
