The graduate program leading to a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering, at California State University, Los Angeles, is designed for engineers who wish to obtain proficiency in their particular field of specialization and for those who want to broaden their perspective and acquire new scientific and practical knowledge. With a Master's degree you will excel in your professional career and be prepared to continue your education, if you decide, toward a doctoral degree in Mechanical Engineering.
The graduate program is organized especially to accommodate the needs of engineers employed full time. The classes applicable toward the graduate degree are offered during evenings or late afternoon hours.
Instruction is offered year round on the quarter system. Each of the four quarters that comprise the academic year (Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer ) is 11 weeks in duration.
The University is located at the eastern edge of Los Angeles and adjacent to the western part of the San Gabriel Valley. The convenient location allows easy access by freeway and major surface streets, as well as by bus and Metrolink, from all parts of the Greater Los Angeles Area.
