Bagley College of Engineering COVID-19 Guidelines  DETAILS

Distance Programs

Aerospace Engineering

M.S. and Ph.D.

The Department of Aerospace Engineering offers graduate study leading to the degrees of Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering (thesis and non-thesis) and Doctor of Philosophy with an Aerospace Engineering concentration. Areas of study include aeroacoustics, aerodynamics, aeroelasticity, autonomous systems, computational fluid dynamics, design optimization, fatigue and fracture, fluid structure interaction, guidance and control, nondestructive evaluation, and structures and composites. Research by faculty and students is performed in state-of-the-art facilities such as the Advanced Performance Composite Materials Laboratory and the Autonomous System Research Lab.  Faculty and students also conduct research at the Advanced Composites Institute, the Raspet Flight Research Laboratory, and the Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems (CAVS), which is a member of the High Performance Computing Collaboratory.

Aerospace Engineering Graduate Program

Civil Engineering

Computational Engineering

M.S. and Ph.D.

The Bagley College of Engineering Online welcomes Computational Engineering to the distance program.

Computational Engineering is an interdisciplinary graduate program where faculty from various departments in engineering, mathematics and science collaborate to conduct research. The program offers both Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy Degrees and the programs of study for each student are tailored based on their background and research directions. Classes in Computational Engineering are taken through the departments of Aerospace, Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science, Math, and others. The online program seeks to prepare engineers and scientists with necessary foundations to tackle problems that are at the convergence of mathematics, engineering and high performance computation.

Master of Engineering

General Engineering or Military Engineering

The Master of Engineering (M Eng) is a professional degree designed for students seeking a non-specific discipline degree in engineering who do not normally have access to traditional degree granting programs at the graduate level. No “core” courses are required as part of the M Eng degree program.

The primary objective of this inter-disciplinary program is to allow professional engineers to pursue a flexible graduate degree in a web-based format. The program will uphold the same rigorous academic requirements as programs offered on the Mississippi State University Campus.

Students choose between a General Engineering or Military Engineering concentration.

Mechanical Engineering

M.S. and Ph.D.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers graduate programs leading to the Master of Science (thesis and non-thesis option) in Mechanical Engineering. There is also a doctoral program for Mechanical Engineering. Every graduate student becomes involved in sponsored research projects. These topics range from sustainable and renewable energy systems, fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, multi-scale modeling, materials, vibrations and more.
