One-year Master's Degree Programs

Master of Science (M.S.) in Engineering at the Nano-scale

The M.S. in Engineering at the Nano-scale is an intensive one-year, 30-credit program requiring completion of a scholarly paper. This highly interdisciplinary program is ideal for individuals with a bachelor's degree in science, engineering, mathematics, or related fields who wish to gain an expanded knowledge and hands-on practices of nanotechnology that can be applied across a broad range of applications and/or who are planning to pursue careers in biomedicine, aerospace, electronics, or advanced materials.

Master of Science (M.S.) in Engineering Science and Mechanics

The M.S. in Engineering Science and Mechanics is an intensive one-year, 32-credit program requiring completion of a scholarly paper. Engineering Science and Mechanics is inherently interdisciplinary in its integration of a strong foundation in science and mathematics with the engineering disciplines. This is interpreted in its broadest context and is applied to multiple aspects of engineering design, materials, and systems, and includes, but is not limited to, electronics, structures, energy (nuclear, fossil, petrochemical, wind) power plants and piping, civil infrastructure (bridges, buildings, roads), communications and electronics, transportation (automotive and hybrid vehicles, aircraft and aerospace, ships), materials behavior, the human body, and even the brain.

Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) in Engineering Mechanics

The M.Eng. in Engineering Mechanics is an intensive one-year, 30-credit program requiring completion of a practical project or extended paper. This interdisciplinary program is ideal for an engineer with a bachelor's degree who wishes to gain an expanded knowledge of engineering mechanics that can be applied across a broad range of applications.

Master of Science (M.S.) in Additive Manufacturing and Design and Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) in Additive Manufacturing and Design

The new one-year M.S. in Additive Manufacturing and Design and M.Eng.in Additive Manufacturing and Design programs offer students and working engineers a unique opportunity to become technically outstanding experts in additive manufacturing in residence at University Park or online via Penn State World Campus. The programs are housed in the Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering, but in reflection of the multidisciplinary nature of additive manufacturing, will integrate graduate coursework across multiple departments from two colleges, Engineering and Earth and Mineral Sciences. Contributing departments include Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering, Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering, Engineering Science and Mechanics, School of Engineering Design, Technology, and Professional Programs, and Materials Science and Engineering.
