Mechanical Engineering is one of the broadest branches of engineering. Mechanical Engineering combines physics and mathematics principles with material science to design, create and maintain mechanical systems. Mechanical Engineers work to solve problems and create solutions for many different fields including Aerospace, Automotive, Health Care, Energy, and many more. From research and development of new products to solving global problems like climate change, every modern device and system you use today need to have the input of a mechanical engineer. Our online Master of Engineering (MEng) in Mechanical Engineering program will give you the skills to be successful in your engineering career.
At UC’s top-ranked Online Masters in Engineering in Mechanical Engineering program, you’ll receive the same rigorous engineering coursework as a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering, but with additional non-technology business courses. Our pragmatic, practical, non-research degree enables you to make a more significant contribution to your business team and/or move into a leadership position.
Engineers who complete this degree are prepared to solve the complex problems of today and manage tasks and projects successfully. For registered engineers, our program is an academically based way to meet the continuing education requirements to maintain licensure.
Mechanical Engineers use their ideas, knowledge, and creativity to create new technologies or products. Every field can use the help and expertise of a Mechanical Engineer to help solve or fix their problems. Mechanical Engineers design, create and test all forms of machines and tools that are used in every industry.
Earning a degree in MEng in Mechanical Engineering can help you start a career in:
The same rigorous engineering coursework with additional non-technology business courses. This enables you to make a more significant contribution to your business team and/or move into a leadership position.
Industry 4.0 is an evolution toward inter-connectivity, automation, machine learning, and decisions based on real-time data acquisition – and is specifically designed to incorporate cutting-edge technical skills in the areas of big data, sensors,
AI/machine learning, additive manufacturing (3-D printing), and cyber-security. UC’s Master of Engineering (Meng) in Mechanical Engineering program focuses on the next advancements in technology within the manufacturing space.

Industry 4.0 – Are you Ready?
Do you love to work with energy and motion to solve complex issues that face our world today? Do you enjoy the idea of taking a product from an idea right to the marketplace? Then an MEng in Mechanical Engineering would be a good fit for you. Rather than culminate in a research experience and a thesis, the Master of Engineering curriculum provides skills and expertise that enhance the individual’s ability to contribute to the technical workforce and become a leader in the engineering industry at large.
From admissions to graduation, we’re here to help.
Yes. The vast majority of our students work throughout their time in their academic program. It is important to assess course load and financial aid to understand how to balance school and work.
If possible, students may cut down on their work hours during a clinical portion of a program.
Most of our programs do not require onsite visits, but there is one exception. If you are interested in pursuing the Master of Science in Nursing-Nurse Midwifery, you will have two skills intensives that take place on campus.
Yes. Many of our students qualify for some type of financial aid.
