Explore our nationally ranked programs

Aerospace Engineering

Aerospace engineers develop new technologies for use in aviation, defense systems and space exploration, often specializing in areas such as aerodynamics, lightweight structural design, navigation and control, and advanced propulsion systems. The aerospace engineering program teaches a broad range of skills and the use of computational tools to design aircraft and spacecraft.

Degrees offered: BSE, MS, PhD

Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineering is a rigorous and creative program that focuses on the study of transforming matter and energy into useful resources for society. Chemical engineers exploit various chemical and physical phenomena to develop products used in everyday life and serve key roles in the petrochemical, materials, electronic and biotechnology industries.

Degrees offered: BSE, MS, PhD

Materials Science and Engineering

Materials engineers use a mix of chemistry and physics to understand and improve the properties and performance of materials that comprise the world around us. Materials engineering benefits many industries as well as day-to-day life. Prospective graduate students from non-engineering backgrounds like chemistry, physics, math and other sciences are encouraged to apply.

Degrees offered: BSE, MS, MS online, PhD

Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineers use their strong understanding of fundamental physics, thermodynamics, structural mechanics and control systems to turn ideas into reality. We create practical tools and devices for all sectors of society, from a single small component to an entire machine.

Degrees offered: BSE, MS and PhD

Solar Energy Engineering & Commercialization

The Solar Energy Engineering & Commercialization graduate program offers advanced, interdisciplinary education in solar energy to students with backgrounds in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM).

Degree offered: PSM
