The Mechanical Engineering program at University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) aims to train engineering scientists who will devote their professional careers to the development of fundamental knowledge and technology from which applications will emerge.

Programme Structure

  • Supplementary courses are intended to round out a student’s overall program of study and can be used to define a secondary area of study, to pursue a useful but un-focused study, and/or to gain credit for further mathematics courses.  Supplementary courses should be primarily from one of the thematic areas within the Mechanical Engineering Department.  
  • However, courses from other departments in the College of Engineering and from other branches of the physical, mathematical, or biological sciences may also be included to round out a student’s overall program of study.  
  • All courses from outside the Mechanical Engineering Department must have prior approval of the student’s academic advisor and the Graduate Program Director.
