Graduate Programs

Our graduate programs offer research degrees with graduate assistantships at the master’s and Ph.D. levels, with the opportunity to specialize in a wide range of topics in mechanical and aerospace engineering. We also offer a non-thesis master’s degree and are a leader in distance education. Students can earn a Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering or a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering degree without ever setting foot on campus.

Application to NC State is handled at the university level by The Graduate School. For an overview of our graduate admission requirements visit our Graduate Admission Requirements website. Visit our How to Apply page for admission deadlines and procedures.
