Mechanical EngineeringMechanical EngineeringThe Department of Mechanical Engineering offers three graduate degreeprograms: the Master of Engineering (M.Eng), the Master of Science(M.S.), and the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.).Master of Engineering (M.Eng)This accelerated Masters of Engineering Program has been designedin collaboration with several other departments in the College ofEngineering for the purpose of developing professional leaders whounderstand the technical, environmental, economic, and social issuesinvolved in Mechanical Engineering. It is supported by the College ofEngineering's Coleman Fung Institute for Engineering Leadership.For more information about this interdisciplinary program, please seethe Fung Institute Website ( are full-time and part-time options for pursuing this program.Master of Science (M.S.)already have academic graduate degrees should be able to pursue newsubject matter at an advanced level without the need to enroll in a relatedor similar graduate program.Programs may consider students for an additional academic master’s orprofessional master’s degree only if the additional degree is in a distinctlydifferent field.Applicants admitted to a doctoral program that requires a master’s degreeto be earned at Berkeley as a prerequisite (even though the applicantalready has a master’s degree from another institution in the same ora closely allied field of study) will be permitted to undertake the secondmaster’s degree, despite the overlap in field.The Graduate Division will admit students for a second doctoral degreeonly if they meet the following guidelines:1. Applicants with doctoral degrees may be admitted for an additionaldoctoral degree only if that degree program is in a general area ofknowledge distinctly different from the field in which they earned theiroriginal degree. For example, a physics PhD could be admitted to adoctoral degree program in music or history; however, a student witha doctoral degree in mathematics would not be permitted to add aPhD in statistics.The MS degree can be earned only in conjunction with a Ph.D. (forthe MS/PhD option) as application for the terminal M.S. is currentlypaused. Degrees are granted after completion of a program of studythat emphasizes the application of the natural sciences to the analysisand solution of engineering problems. Advanced courses in engineering,math, and the sciences are normally included in a program thatincorporates the engineering systems approach for the analysis ofproblems.Applicants may apply only to one single degree program or oneconcurrent degree program per admission cycle.Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.)Required Documents for ApplicationsThis degree can be completed in conjunction with a master of sciencedegree or alone. Degrees are granted after completion of programsof study that emphasize the application of the natural sciences to theanalysis and solution of engineering problems. Advanced courses inmathematics, chemistry, physics, and the life sciences are normallyincluded in a program that incorporates the engineering systemsapproach for the analysis of problems.Admission to the UniversityMinimum Requirements for AdmissionThe following minimum requirements apply to all graduate programs andwill be verified by the Graduate Division:1. A bachelor’s degree or recognized equivalent from an accreditedinstitution;2. A grade point average of B or better (3.0);3. If the applicant comes from a country or political entity (e.g., Quebec)where English is not the official language, adequate proficiency inEnglish to do graduate work, as evidenced by a TOEFL score ofat least 90 on the iBT test, 570 on the paper-and-pencil test, or anIELTS Band score of at least 7 on a 9-point scale (note that individualprograms may set higher levels for any of these); and4. Sufficient undergraduate training to do graduate work in the givenfield.Applicants Who Already Hold a Graduate DegreeThe Graduate Council views academic degrees not as vocational trainingcertificates, but as evidence of broad training in research methods,independent study, and articulation of learning. Therefore, applicants who12. Applicants who hold the PhD degree may be admitted to aprofessional doctorate or professional master’s degree program ifthere is no duplication of training involved.1. Transcripts: Applicants may upload unofficial transcripts with yourapplication for the departmental initial review. If the applicant isadmitted, then official transcripts of all college-level work will berequired. Official transcripts must be in sealed envelopes as issuedby the school(s) attended. If you have attended Berkeley, uploadyour unofficial transcript with your application for the departmentalinitial review. If you are admitted, an official transcript with evidenceof degree conferral will not be required.2. Letters of recommendation: Applicants may request online lettersof recommendation through the online application system. Hardcopies of recommendation letters must be sent directly to theprogram, not the Graduate Division.3. Evidence of English language proficiency: All applicants fromcountries or political entities in which the official language is notEnglish are required to submit official evidence of English languageproficiency. This applies to applicants from Bangladesh, Burma,Nepal, India, Pakistan, Latin America, the Middle East, the People’sRepublic of China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Southeast Asia, mostEuropean countries, and Quebec (Canada). However, applicantswho, at the time of application, have already completed at least oneyear of full-time academic course work with grades of B or better at aUS university may submit an official transcript from the US universityto fulfill this requirement. The following courses will not fulfill thisrequirement: courses in English as a Second Language, courses conducted in a language other than English, courses that will be completed after the application is submitted,and courses of a non-academic nature.
