ASU’s Mechanical Engineering program is rapidly evolving, bringing new ideas and applications, from human-machine interaction to computational modeling to renewable energy.

ASU’s mechanical engineering graduate faculty and students conduct innovative research in all of the traditional core areas of mechanical engineering with applications to some of society’s most pressing problems in energy, environment, human health and transportation. State-of-the-art laboratories and computational facilities support the research and educational missions. All graduate degree programs stress a sound foundation in technical fundamentals, communication and professionalism, along with access to several interdisciplinary programs. A broad‐based curriculum is offered in design, systems and control, fluid mechanics science and engineering, mechanics and dynamics of solids, transport phenomena, thermodynamics and energy.

Application Deadlines


Priority – December 31


Priority – August 1

A priority deadline means that applications submitted and completed after the priority deadlines will be reviewed in the order in which they were completed and on a space available basis. Late applications may not be considered for a Teaching Assistantship (TA).

Financing Your Education

Fellowships through ASU and external resources, along with research and teaching assistant positions, offer many alternatives to fund your education expenses at ASU—often for multiple years or even the full course of study. Fellowship resources are limited, and many fellowships require U.S. citizenship or the right to work in the United States.

Fellowships are awarded on a highly competitive basis as part of the graduate program application process.

Financial Aid
ASU has many financial aid options. Almost everyone, regardless of income, can qualify for some form of financial aid. In fact, more than 70 percent of all ASU students receive some form of financial assistance every year.

Admission Requirements

All students are required to meet general university admission requirements.
