The Mechanical Engineering department offers both a Masters Degree in Mechanical Engineering (MSME) as well as a blended BMS program (for current Cal Poly students only) leading to MSME degree. The only difference between the two programs is that in the blended program, up to 8 units of undergraduate technical electives may be double-counted towards the masters requirements (only 5 units are double-counted if course option is chosen). Other differences between the two programs are only internal and relate to the processing of application and financial aid. In the Blended program the undergraduate degree is not awarded until requirements for both BSc and MSc are satisfied.

CSU now requires that you change your objective as close to, but before, you have 180 units towards graduation (out of about 200 required depending on your catalog).

Cal Poly's masters program includes 45 units of course work including a thesis or coursework and an exam. The same philosophy and emphasis on best teaching practices, hands-on education with classes and labs taught by faculty, apply to the masters program as well. Our program is still more hands-on than most other schools, especially when a thesis is involved.

We offer both a thesis oriented program as well as coursework oriented program. The thesis (9 units) is conducted by the student under the advice of a committee of three faculty members. Alternately, 9 units of ME-500 level courses and a comprehensive exam may be taken in lieu of the thesis.

It is required that you have a GPA of at least 3 in your formal study plan to receive your masters degree.
