Penn State Offers New Online Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering
Date:7/15/2013

University Park, PA (PRWEB) July 15, 2013

What do new developments in renewable energy, homeland security and biomedical devices have in common? They all require mechanical engineering to be successful. As the U.S. economy continues to improve, demand for mechanical engineers is up 9 percent, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Advancing in this career, which involves designing, developing, building and testing mechanical devices, will be more convenient with Penn State’s master of science in mechanical engineering (MSME), which will be delivered online starting this fall.

“Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest of the engineering disciplines and gives people a lot of flexibility to work in design, research and technical sales, or in their own businesses,” said Daniel Haworth, professor of mechanical engineering and professor-in-charge of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering Graduate Programs. "Penn State’s MSME has a prescribed set of general requirements, but students can tailor the degree to their specific engineering interests."

Penn State has offered mechanical arts education since its formation. By 1887, the College of Engineering had a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. In the 1930s, a master’s degree in mechanical engineering was created. This degree now ranks among the top U.S. programs. More recently, the college’s Industrial Advisory Board recommended offering this degree online to meet employee education needs, said Karen A. Thole, professor and head of the Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering.

"Many of our Penn State mechanical engineering graduates also are interested in an advanced degree, but they want to continue their education while working," added Thole. "By offering this degree online, more Penn State alumni and other engineers will be able to access our
