Course Offerings

The Course Schedule Matrix outlines when classes are expected to be taught. Actual semester schedules are subject to change due to teacher availability and registration numbers. “Odd years” and “even years” are determined by fall semester. Academic year 2015-2016 will be an odd year. Academic year 2016-2017 is an even year. The Mechanical Engineering Graduate Level Course Descriptions provide additional details.


Provided below is the tentative teaching schedule of graduate course offerings which is organized by our core department divisions. This schedule is subject to change with the onus being on the student to check back each semester for possible updates.
