Master of Science (M.S.) Program offered in School of Mechanical Engineering

To obtain a Master of Science (MS) Degree from School of Mechanical Engineering (ME), students must fulfill the following requirements. 

1. Complete specific Coursework.

2. Preparation, propose, and defend a Master Thesis.

3. No requirement for paper publication.

②Among the 30 credits, at least 19 credits must be obtained from GPA courses.
③ Compulsory courses are: Chinese Language (2 credits), Chinese Culture (2 credits), English for Academic Purposes (2 credits) and two mathematics courses (6 credits). All of these five courses belong to GPA courses.

2) Minimum GPA requirement.
①Students whose GPA for GPA courses below 2.7 are not eligible for thesis defense.
② Students who failed in exam are not eligible for thesis defense. Students who retake the corresponding course and get exam passed will be eligible for thesis defense.

2.Master Thesis

Candidates who have completed all the requirements of Coursework are eligible for master thesis defense. The length of the thesis should be around 20,000 words in English. A successful defense of a Master Thesis involves the following steps, which are shown in Fig. 3.

To-do List



Step 1.   Upload Thesis Proposal Form online and submit   the hard copy to Graduate Affairs Office.

The end of semester   3

Work with your   supervisor on the thesis proposal.

Thesis proposal provides the   following information: (1) the proposed content of the research work, (2) a comprehensive literature review of the state-of-the-art   in the field, (3) a description of the research tasks that have   been completed, (4) a discussion of preliminary   results, (5) the original contribution of the proposed research,   and (6) the tasks that will be completed before the thesis defense.

Step 2.Upload draft thesis   online for repetition check and blind-evaluation

a month before the   end of  semester 5

Candidates will get   repetition-check result before the deadline. Candidates with repetition-check   rate over 10% will not be   eligible to apply for MS degree. The draft thesis uploaded is the one to   be evaluated in blind-evaluation process.

Step 3.Get informed of blind-evaluation and submits hard copy of draft thesis to Graduate School.

a week before the   end of semester 5

(1)Candidates’   draft thesis will be selected randomly for blind evaluation. The result of blind-evaluation only serves as reference suggestions to final thesis defense result.
  (2) Graduate School only accepts draft thesis for bind-evaluation on Thursday.

Step 4.Check the feedback   of draft thesis evaluation

a week before the thesis   defense

Candidates’ draft thesis will be evaluated by two   experts. Candidates can check the feedback of evaluation before the deadline.

Step 5.   Apply for   thesis defense online


3 days before  thesis defense

Step 6. Defense for thesis

The end of semester   5

Thesis defense   lasts for 40 minutes, including 20-30 minutes presentation of thesis content   and 10-20 minutes answering questions given by Master Thesis Committee (MTC).

Step 7.Submit final thesis   online

3 days after thesis   defense

Candidates revise   draft thesis according to MTC’s comments. Final thesis and other related   documents will be submitted to Academic Degree Committee for final   evaluation.

Step 8.   Being   awarded M.S degree
