Mechanical Engineering is one of the traditional engineering disciplines and is also at the forefront of modern technological innovations. Stony Brook places a strong emphasis on graduate programs that produce individuals with competent backgrounds in the basic principles and who are prepared for industrial research and development positions, university faculty posts, and leadership roles in government agencies.
Students can choose one of three areas of concentration: mechanical design, solid mechanics, and thermal sciences and fluid mechanics. They can then focus on experimental, analytical, or computational aspect-or any combination of these aspects. Our graduate program is flexible: many graduate courses are offered in the late afternoon or evening and part-time graduate students have no difficulty in selecting these courses to earn their degrees.
