"Looking back, the times my career progressed the fastest was while I was pursuing a degree. I took a break after earning my BS, and my career plateaued. After being passed over for a couple promotions, I looked for a way to get things moving again, and enrolled in an MS program. It was a great experience that enhanced my knowledge, expanded my network, and opened doors. In the end, the toughest thing for me was choosing between the two great jobs I was offered. Neither would have been possible without the MS."

For anyone who wants to enhance their skills and credentials, particularly in the area of design, but do so relatively quickly, we now offer our same, respected, MS degree on a time and cost efficient basis. Rather than the traditional two year time-frame, our classes-only MS degree can now be obtained in less than one year.
|"DU's one year MS program is a timely addition to the state's educational options that makes sense in the current, competitive market."|

The MSME 1-Year program requires 45 quarter credit hours. Each quarter we offer five, graduate level 4-quarter credit courses that integrate seamlessly into any individualized MSME program.
4 courses (16 quarter hours)
4 courses (16 quarter hours)
3 courses plus
One quarter hour of independent study
45 quarter hours
(for the cost of 36 QH)
The three course quarter could be done in the Fall or Winter instead, or you can take 4 courses each quarter and end up with 48 quarter credit hours.
Our faculty's talent spans a range of the most exciting research topics, but all share a common thread in design. Each quarter we offer one required Core course that all students in the program must take, an advance numerical methods course using Matlab, Optimization or Reliability (alternating years), and a course on Manufacturing.
The other elective courses each quarter can be taken from any of our four specialty tracks:
- Thermal Fluids (Computational Fluid Dynamics, Advanced Fluid Dynamics, Advanced Heat Transfer, etc.).
- Solids and Materials (Composites, Finite Element Analysis, Fatigue/Fracture, etc.).
- Dynamic Systems (Advanced Dynamics, Mechanisms, Controls etc.).
- Bioengineering (Biomechanics, Biofluids, Computational Biomechanics, etc.).
For students with interdisciplinary interests or needs, we allow our students to take courses from Electrical and Computer Engineering and we accept one Business or Law course towards the total credit hour requirements.
For more information, contact Dr. Matt Gordon (firstname.lastname@example.org), Chair of the Mechanical and Materials Engineering Department or Dr. Yun-Bo Yi (Yun-Bo.Yi@du.edu), Graduate Program Coordinator. Additional details on our specific MS degrees can be found here.
