In this unique online program designed specifically for the internal combustion engine industry, you will
  • Develop broad-based technical expertise and skills for leading engine development projects
  • Integrate knowledge from thermal sciences, design and mechanics, electronics and control, applications and service, and manufacturing
  • Learn with faculty from UW's renowned Engine Research Center and Powertrain Control Research Laboratory, industry leaders and experienced colleagues
To answer the need for broad-based technical knowledge, the MEES curriculum incorporates topics from a wide variety of disciplines, including thermal sciences, design and mechanics, electronics and control, applications and service, and manufacturing. You also develop critical project management and computer problem-solving skills for ensuring project success. Upon completion of the MEES degree you should be able to:
  • Manage the complete development process for a new engine.
  • Clearly articulate customer and application requirements for a given engine.
  • Effectively integrate engine design with the various manufacturing processes, including casting, forging, and machining.
  • Select the combustion system, fuel, and engine system configuration that will best meet the needs of a particular application.
  • Lay out a new engine design and identify the critical package dimensions resulting from particular design decisions.
  • Effectively optimize each component, sub-system, and system required in the engine design.
  • Articulate the capabilities and limitations of each family of analysis tools and each rig and engine experimental technique typically used in engine development.
  • Lead the development and optimization of the air handling and combustion systems for both diesel and spark-ignition engines.
  • Lead in defining and implementing the durability validation required for a completely new engine.
  • Coordinate the NVH measurement and optimization for the new engine with total vehicle efforts to meet regulatory requirements and customer expectations.
  • Integrate the design and development of the engine with the control systems required for fueling, combustion, aftertreatment, and engine/vehicle interaction.
  • Communicate your designs and ide
