Raghuram Sukumar Degree Programs 12 Comments

Lets look at some of the area of specialization (or majors) offered under Masters in Mechanical Engineering degree. From the list you can see the options available varies between universities.

Also, courses offered for each majors will be different and unique. If you are interested to study M.S. in Mechanical Engineering in Fluid Mechanics, then you have to do the following

  • Find list of universities that offer Fluid Mechanics Major
  • Find the courses offered under the major
  • See if you would be interested in those courses
  • Check admission requirements.
  • Contact professors to see if they have opening in research lab
  • If you find a good match, submit your application.

  1. Does any university offer Masters in Hydraulics and Pneumatics specialization?

  2. can you give the list of majors in electrical engineering and the universities offering the course.

  3. can you send me in details regarding all offered subject for Masters in Electrical Engg.

  4. While taking above subjects make sure that it must not be used in defence like military to great extent.CFD computational Fluid Dnamics while taking this subject be sure because very few firms can afford such fields. u may not get job in thsi field one of my friend had to come back from Ohio university.

  5. Can I opt for structural design or machine tool design in masters in mechanical engineering

  6. among thses so many specialization courses … which is the best one to b done ?

    1. well i would say the best is thermal and most wide subject with lot of industries requre this unit

  7. Hi 
    I doing my PhD in Mineral Engineering, but my background is on Industrial Engineering. If I want to go back to Industrial Engineering in other university how can I do that.
    Please suggest

    1. Hey
      I’m fully confused about these specialisations and subjects.
      Tell me one thing…How many subjects must be taken for MS.and does those subjects which we have taken are present in our specialisation.???
      Or they belong to other.???
      Please help me..
      thanks in advance.

  8. Please provide me the universities in USA and Australia that are best for masters in mechanical engineering specialized in Heat Transfer, Thermodynamics, and Energy Systems? What is the scope of this program?

  9. Hi I am seeking for MS at USA in Mechanical engineering and as per my interest I want to opt Thermal Fluid Systems as my specialization so, kindly please tell me what are the job opportunities as per the above and if less opportunities are there with the same then which specialization in mechanical should I go for ,considering the bright future?
