For the 2022 and 2023 graduate admission process, given the potential difficulty in access to testing due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the department of Mechanical Engineering will not require GRE tests for applications for graduate admission for 2022 and 2023. We will thus not use GRE scores as a basis for evaluating candidates for admission in the 2023 application process.
We offer 9 Graduate Degrees
Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (SMME)
Master of Science in Ocean Engineering (SMOE)
Master of Science in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering (SMNAME)
Master of Science in Oceanographic Engineering (SMOGE, joint MIT/WHOI degree)
Mechanical Engineer’s (ME) Degree
Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) or Doctor of Science (ScD), which differs in name only (this includes the joint MIT/WHOI degrees)
Dual degree with Leaders for Global Operations (LGO) Program in MIT Sloan School of Management (Please go to the following website: https://lgo.mit.edu/ to learn more about applying through LGO.)
Recent MIT graduate Erin Looney, who received her PhD in mechanical engineering, reflects on the surprising benefits of defending her doctoral thesis virtually.
In a new groundbreaking study, a team led by Professor Gang Chen determined that the material known as cubic boron arsenide overcomes the limitations of silicon and is the best semiconductor material ever found.
