STEPHENVILLE, Texas – Graduate students seeking a master’s degree in mechanical engineering now have another option. Tarleton State University will present this fall the first semester of a new program offered by the Department of Mechanical, Environmental and Civil Engineering.

“We are proud to add this Masters in Mechanical Engineering to our inventory of graduate programs at Tarleton,” said Dr. Credence Baker, Dean of Graduate Studies. “The faculty has worked hard to ensure that we offer high quality, innovative courses, and we are all very happy to welcome our first cohort of students.

The degree, available on the Tarleton campus in Stephenville or online, is designed to prepare for work at the doctoral level or for students who wish to advance their careers.

“This is a big step forward,” said Dr. Karen Murray of Tarleton Provost. “This new master’s program supports the university’s long-standing commitment to academic advancement and improves employment opportunities for students.

“In addition to providing students with exemplary education and training, the program better positions Tarleton to meet the growing workforce needs of North Texas and beyond. “

Thesis and professional (non-thesis) options are available. Both offer a rigorous curriculum and allow students to focus in specialist areas of their choice.
