Student Quotes

“I was attracted to the MRes course at Swansea as the subject matter was just what I was looking for.

I previously worked as a Cardiovascular Research Assistant at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute in Melbourne. My employer, the Head of the Cardiology Department, encouraged me to develop skills in modelling as this has a lot of potential to help answer some current questions and controversies in the field. I was looking for a Master’s level course that could provide me with computational modelling skills that I could apply to blood flow problems, particularly those arising from congenital heart disease.

The College of Engineering at Swansea is certainly a good choice. In the computational modelling area, it is one of the leading centres in the world (they wrote the textbook, literally). A lot of people I knew in Swansea initially came to study for a couple of years, but then ended up never leaving. I can see how that could happen.”

Jonathan Mynard, MRes Computer Modelling in Engineering, then PhD at the University of Melbourne, currently post-doctoral fellow at the Biomedical Simulation Laboratory, University of Toronto, Canada

See the department website - http://www.rit.edu/kgcoe/mechanical/program/graduate-ms/overview

The master of science degree in mechanical engineering consists of a minimum of 30 credit hours (24 credit hours of course work and 6 credit hours of thesis). A limited number of credit hours may be transferred from graduate courses taken outside the university, provided such courses complement a student’s proposed graduate program in the mechanical engineering department. An adviser will review course work for possible transfer credit. Upon matriculation into the MS program, the student should formulate a plan of study in consultation with an adviser.

Plan of study

The program includes core courses, focus area courses, elective courses, and a thesis. All full-time and full-time equivalent students are required to attend the weekly graduate seminar each semester they are on campus.

- Focus area courses

All students must develop a focus area of study, with prior approval from their adviser and the department head. The focus area should consist of at least 9 credit hours of graduate study in mechanical engineering and be related to the student’s technical and professional development interests. Examples of focus areas include controls, thermo/fluids, and mechanics/design/materials.

- Independent study

A student also may earn a limited number of credits by doing an independent study with guidance from a member of the graduate faculty. Areas for independent study include selected topics in applied mathematics, mechanics, thermo-fluids, and controls.

- Thesis

Students prepare and present a formal thesis proposal to their faculty adviser prior to completing their course work. An acceptable proposal – including a statement of work, extensive literature search, and proposed timeline, signed by the student and approved by their faculty adviser and department head – is required before students can register for MSMS Thesis (MECE-790). Students are required to submit a written thesis and orally present their thesis work.

International Students

International applicants whose native language is not English must submit scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).
