World-Class Graduate Education

The Engineering Mechanics (EM) graduate program at The University of Texas at Austin prepares Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy students for continued work in academia and industry. Graduates are equipped to solve technical problems in a wide range of fields including aerospace, automotive, petroleum, manufacturing, and computer engineering to name a few. Our faculty possess a broad range of expertise in experimental, theoretical, and computational mechanics.

Degree Programs

We offer advanced study and research leading to the Master of Science in Engineering degree and the Doctor of Philosophy degree in engineering mechanics. The normal prerequisite for graduate study is a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering mechanics or in a related field of engineering. Graduate study is possible for those with degrees in science or mathematics, but some undergraduate coursework will be needed to make up any deficiencies.
