Mechanical Engineering - M.S.

Mechanical engineers research, design, develop, manufacture and test power-producing tools, engines, machines and mechanical devices. From the refrigerator in your kitchen to the car in your driveway, products made by mechanical engineers are found in everyday life.

Why Choose Mechanical Engineering?

Mechanical engineering is a vast field with a variety of job opportunities. This field is considered the "general practitioner" of the engineering disciplines, focused primarily on the conversion, transmission and use of power.

Students who successfully complete Manhattan College’s mechanical engineering M.S. program are trained to work in industries including:

  • automotive
  • aerospace
  • biomedical
  • construction
  • green building design
  • solar energy
  • power generation

NSF Graduate Research Fellowship

As a graduate student in Manhattan College’s School of Engineering, you may be eligible to apply for a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. This fellowship recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. The fellowship includes a stipend to support international research and professional development.

New York City Location

There are few better places to be a mechanical engineer than New York City. Our students use the city as their classroom, visiting sites and speaking with successful alumni who work in the industry. There’s also a chance to test out what you’re learning in class by applying for an internships or job at a major company including:

  • Bayer
  • Boeing
  • BP Mechanical
  • Con Edison
  • Kraft
  • Kinetic Systems, Inc.
  • Kohler Co.
  • McKinstry
  • National Grid
  • NYC Dept. of Transportation
  • NYC Transit Authority
  • New York Power Authority

What Will You Learn?

You will expand on the fundamentals of engineering disciplines, including:

  • machine design
  • electric circuitry
  • thermodynamics
  • heat transfer
  • fluid mechanics

As a final research project, all students are required to conduct an original investigation of or design a type of machine they have studied, such as a nuclear reactor or combustion system.

What Will You Do?

The need for skilled mechanical engineers exceeds the number of existing qualified workers. The mechanical engineering M.S. program will prepare you for advanced technical positions or for admission to doctoral programs.

Being part of the Mechanical Engineering master’s program was just amazing. I am now working as a mechanical engineer in New York. What I am doing is exactly related to what I learned at Manhattan College. Through my job, I even had the chance to go inside the One World Trade Center tower during construction. I couldn't have experienced such a great start in my career without Manhattan College.
