Learning without Limits. It's a Trine thing.

The Program

Your engineering degree has placed you in one of the most in-demand professions today. Great opportunities arise for the top engineers, those skilled in designing the most complex systems. Trine's Allen School of Engineering and Technology can give you the additional expertise you need through our one-year Master of engineering with a major in mechanical engineering program. You'll be better positioned to excel and obtain the level of salary and promotions you desire.

Trine is one of only a few engineering schools offering traditional students the opportunity to complete both a bachelor of science degree and an master of engineering degree simultaneously. The five-year program (4+1) requires five academic years with one summer of study. Upon completion of the program, students receive both a bachelor's and master's degree.

The Experience

We help you increase the value of your bachelor's degree with just one year of design-based, practice-oriented training in engineering. All you need is a bachelor of science in the mechanical engineering field, or a closely related discipline, to be eligible for this program. Evening and late-afternoon classes accommodate working professionals.


The Result

The rapidly changing technologies used by leaders in business, industry, and government require advanced knowledge of design, development and research.     You will create, invent, and apply science using state-of-the-art technology and accomplish this through our one-year program.  It is all part of our mission to educate knowledgeable engineers who are ready to solve today's industrial challenges.

Many states are considering a proposal to require one year of education beyond the bachelor's degree for registration as a Professional Engineer.  With its emphasis on design and practice, this program offers an excellent base for professional registration.
