Master of Engineering in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering

From research to real-world applications, OSU's master of engineering in mechanical and aerospace engineering graduates constantly discover how to improve our lives by creating bold new solutions that connect science to life in unexpected, forward thinking ways.  Our students have a variety of opportunities to challenge themselves, experience great things and be nationally recognized by their accomplishments.   


The MEngMAE program consists of 33 credit hours.  Graduate courses from other disciplines may be allowed but will require approval of the student's Graduate Advisory Committee and the MAE Graduate Coordinator prior to enrollment.


Research and Faculty


While my personal interest has always been with unique configurations, particularly fixed wing platforms that incorporate vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) capabilities, intelligent systems that can adapt to new conditions will change the way we operate UAS in the future and make them truly useful across wide ranges of commercial and civilian users.

Cost & Assistance

Many graduate students are hired by professors to work on funded research projects. These students conduct research for faculty and are paid from the faculty’s research grants and contracts.

To receive a research assistantship the applicant must directly contact the MAE faculty in their area(s) of interest. Master's students are not generally offered a research assistantship until after demonstrating at least a semester of hard work, motivation, and research proficiency within coursework and the laboratory setting. 

Students with an excellent academic background and a high GRE score usually receive support in the form of a research and/or teaching assistantship(s). The number and type of assistantships, as well as the level of support, depend on the funding available at the time MAE receives the application.
