UB - University at Buffalo, The State University of New York UB Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering

General Academic Information

The Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering offers Master of Science (M.S.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees in both Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering fields. Our graduate students are offered an inter-disciplinary research environment supported by the externally funded research programs of our faculty. The coursework and research topics include diverse but inter-connected thrust areas: Computational and Applied Mechanics, Design and Optimization, Dynamics & Control, Fluid and Thermal Sciences, Materials and Structures, Biomechanics, Robotics, Advanced Manufacturing and many more. The department offers teaching & research assistantships and research labs with modern facilities and computing resources to support the graduate research programs.

Why Choose UB MAE

Within the School of Engineering at the University at Buffalo-SUNY, the MAE graduate program offers

  • High faculty-to-student ratio.
  • Flexible coursework plan to meet the needs of individual students.
  • Highly collaborative and cross-disciplinary research environments.
  • State-of-the-art research facilities.
  • The opportunity to make significant contributions to the student's field of studies including participation in innovative programs like the MD-Ph.D. joint degree.

Our degree programs are Middle-States accredited and each student's coursework is decided upon in consultation with the Director of Graduate Studies and the student's academic advisor.
