Academic Programs

Graduate Programs in Mechanical Engineering
The oregon state school of mechanical, industrial and manufacturing engineeringmechanical engineering (ME) profession is dedicated to applying principles of physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics in the analysis, design, manufacturing and maintenance of mechanical components, devices, and systems. Oregon State's graduate program in ME is designed to educate leaders who will develop and improve systems for transforming energy, health, materials, and information to meet the needs of society.

Graduate Programs in Industrial Engineering
I oregon state school of mechanical, industrial and manufacturing engineeringndustrial engineering (IE) is a profession dedicated to the design, integration, and optimization of systems of people and machines that produce and deliver high quality goods and services. Oregon State University offers graduate studies in IE leading to MEng, MS, and PhD degrees. At OSU we can prepare you for an industrial, academic, service or government career in advanced manufacturing, engineering management, human systems engineering, and information systems engineering. To be eligible for graduate studies in the industrial engineering graduate program at Oregon State University, applicants must have a baccalaureate or master’s degree in science, mathematics, engineering, computer science, or business as well as at least one course in each of the following preparatory areas: linear algebra, statistics, engineering economy and computer programming.

Graduate Programs in Materials Science
M oregon state school of mechanical, industrial and manufacturing engineeringaterials Science is inherently interdisciplinary, involving fundamental aspects of chemistry, physics, biology, geoscience, agricultural science, mathematics, and engineering. The Materials Science graduate program at Oregon State both embraces and reflects this interdisciplinarity. Administratively headquartered in the School of MIME, the program spans three colleges and nine academic units and offers five areas of concentration: Structural materials and mechanical behavior of materials; Electroceramic materials; Polymer materials; Electronic materials; and Materials nano-processing.

Graduate Programs in Robotics
The oregon state school of mechanical, industrial and manufacturing engineering Robotics graduate program at Oregon State spans departments in the College of Engineering, with core faculty from Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science, and Electrical & Computer Engineering. Affilliations and collaborations across the university include oceanography, biomechanics, art, forestry, agriculture, and other programs. Students may earn Ph.D., M.S., or M.Eng. degrees in Robotics or choose an appropriate double major, such as Robotics and Computer Science, to appear on their diplomas. The program includes core areas of robotics, including actuation, locomotion, manipulation, dynamics, control, sensing, artificial intelligence, and human/robot interaction.
