The MME Department offers the opportunity for undergraduates to combine their studies with a master's degree in Mechanical Engineering. One principal potential benefit of a combined program is the reduced time required to complete the degrees compared to completing them sequentially. Another is close advisement by a faculty member early in studies at Miami.
Students can declare their interest in the combined program anytime during their academic career at Miami, from the time they apply for undergraduate admission. Up to 6 or 9 credit hours may be double-counted for non-thesis and thesis degree options, respectively. The actual number of hours double-counted may vary due to the student's undergraduate preparation.
Students in the Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering Department with a declared major in Mechanical Engineering and/or Manufacturing Engineering can apply for early admission into this M.S. degree. To be considered for the combined degree program, applicants should have completed the engineering courses recommended for the first two years of study and their prerequisites. Preferably, they should have taken or be taking MME 312 and MME/ECE 303 at the time of application. Students from other majors are welcome to apply.
