    Total: 15 Credits

Students must choose one of two tracks: Thesis Option or Non-Thesis Option

 
Option 1: Thesis Credits:
Engineering Electives Graduate-level (above 600) electives1 9
MENG 660 Mechanical Engineering Research2 3
MENG 661 Mechanical Engineering Thesis3 3
    Total: 15 Credits
(1) A minimum of three graduate-level (above 600) elective credits in Mechanical Engineering must be taken, and up to six credits of electives may be taken from other engineering departments, with the approval of the Mechanical Engineering department chair.
(2) Complete a research project under the supervision of a faculty member. The student must submit a project report to their project advisor.
(3) The student must present and defend a written thesis that must be approved by the thesis advisor and the thesis committee. A formal written thesis will be archived in the university library. All master's theses must strictly adhere to the Master's Thesis Policies and Guidelines published by NYIT College of Engineering and Computing Sciences.

Within the thesis option, the student must choose an advisor to concentrate on one of the following four specific areas: Design and Solid Mechanics, Energy and Thermal Science, Mechatronics, or Biomedical Devices.
 
Option 2: Non-Thesis Credits:
Engineering Electives Graduate-level (above 600) electives4 12
MENG 660 Mechanical Engineering Research5 3
    Total: 15 Credits
(4) A minimum of six graduate-level (above 600) elective credits in Mechanical Engineering must be taken, and up to six credits of electives may be taken from other engineering departments, with the approval of the Mechanical Engineering department chair.
(5) Working on a research project with a faculty member, the student must submit a project report to their project advisor. A passing grade on the course will depend on a satisfactory performance as determined by the student's project advisor.
