All full-time graduate students pursuing degrees in Mechanical Engineering at UMBC are advised to focus on completing at least one course from each thematic area of the designated Core Curriculum during their first year of study. Students generally take all core courses in their area of specialization.
Students may decide to enroll in graduate courses in Mechanical Engineering with no preparation. While this may be appropriate for students with undergraduate degrees in related fields, such as Aerospace Engineering, we recommend that interested students take specific undergraduate courses (or their equivalent at another institution) prior to taking the graduate courses.
