Important Note: Not all Aerospace Engineering or Mechanical Engineering courses are available at both the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and UTSI campuses.

Graduate programs leading to the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy are available with majors in mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering, and biomedical engineering.

In mechanical engineering or aerospace engineering, entrance into the Master of Science program is available to qualified graduates of recognized undergraduate curricula in mechanical or aerospace engineering and to qualified graduates of other curricula who satisfy the necessary prerequisites. Admission into the doctoral program will be granted to those applicants who have demonstrated superior achievement in their engineering backgrounds. The general GRE is required of all applicants for admission. Changing from one of these programs to another requires departmental approval. Each applicant is advised as to any prerequisite courses before entering a program. Each student must satisfactorily complete a program of study that has been approved by his/her advisory committee and complies with the requirements of the Graduate Council. See the various programs listed above for more admissions information.

Entrance into the graduate program in biomedical engineering is available to graduates of recognized curricula in engineering, mathematics, or one of the physical sciences who satisfy the necessary prerequisites. The names and addresses of three references must be included with the program application. The general GRE is required of all applicants for admission.

Each student must satisfactorily complete a program of study that has been approved by his/her advisory committee and complies with the requirements of the Graduate Council.

 

Graduate Credit for Undergraduate Courses

Students majoring in mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering or biomedical engineering may not normally use more than one 400-level engineering course to meet their advanced degree requirements. Undergraduate courses that are required for the bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering may not be taken for graduate credit by graduate students in mechanical engineering. Undergraduate courses that are required for the bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering may not be taken for graduate credit by graduate students in aerospace engineering. Undergraduate courses that are required for the bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering may not be taken for graduate credit by graduate students in biomedical engineering. For students majoring in engineering science, 400-level graduate courses in engineering may be used to meet requirements at the discretion of the advising committee. However, at least two-thirds of the minimum required hours in a master’s degree program must be at or above the 500-level. With the approval of the student’s major department, a student whose major is outside the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace, and Biomedical Engineering may take 400-level graduate courses in the department. Such students should consult with instructors regarding prerequisites for undergraduate courses.
