Applications of Mechanical Engineering

Application Information | Mechanical Engineering

Thank you for considering the Department of Mechanical Engineering for your graduate education. Refer to the application information on this page as you apply to earn your master's degree.

The MS program has two options: course-based terminal MS degree or thesis MS degree. Financial support to MS students is extremely rare. The tuition amount is available at The Graduate School.

All applications are evaluated based on a number of factors, including:

Those whose native language is not English must also supply Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) scores with a minimum of 577 or higher on the paper-based text, 233 or higher on the computer-based test, and 90 or higher on the Internet-based test.

If you wish to be considered for teaching assistantships you must also score at least 50 on the Test of Spoken English (TSE) or pass the English test administrated by NU's linguistics department after enrollment.

Application Deadlines

Applications for the MS program must be received by May 31 (April 30 for international students) for fall admission, October 31 for winter admission, and January 31 for spring admission.

However, most admission decisions for the fall quarter will be made well before the final deadlines, so applications should be submitted by March in order to receive full consideration. For winter or spring admissions, please review the relevant information under "Dates" on the FAQ for MS Candidates page.

Documents Required with Application

Detailed information about the required documentation is available in the online application. Required items:

1. $95 non-refundable application fee, paid via credit card through the online application process

2. Completed online application form

3. The following documents need to be submitted online:

  • Statement of purpose
  • Resume or curriculum vitae
  • Two letters of recommendation

4. Official test scores for GRE and TOEFL (minimum of 90 if required) or IELTS (minimum of 7.0 if required). Official scores should be sent to Northwestern University at institution code 1565. Alternatively, you may upload copies of your GRE, TOEFL, or IELTS score reports online with your application and Northwestern staff will call ETS to verify the scores.

5. Optional: Women and members of under-represented minorities (African American, Hispanic, and Native American applicants) are encouraged to submit a diversity statement to identify themselves as possible candidates for specially designated fellowships. Any other information (such as published research papers) that make your application stronger should also be uploaded online. The writing sample is not needed for Mechanical Engineering applications.

Information for Incoming Students

Decisions for fall quarter admissions may be made as early as January 15 and will be continuously made until all positions are filled. The vast majority will be decided by the end of March.

What is the applicability of mechanical engineering in it industry?

In an It industry lot of CAD/CAM operations are undergoing for that purpose Mechanical engineers are most wanted in the IT industry. Especially Mechanical engineers have more compatibility and adaptability over the industry and has lot of managements studies in their curriculam itself so mechanical engineers are most adapotable for IT industry. Mechanical engieers have passion to grow and passion to lear
