Mechanical Engineering


Each October and March, in advance of the registration period, you will be surveyed regarding course selection for the upcoming semester. TxEEE staff will then register students for courses during their designated registration access periods. Invoices with tuition due dates will be sent to students. It is the student’s responsibility to double-check their tuition invoices to ensure they were registered appropriately.

Please note that priority will be given to students nearing the end of their program of study. It is important that you respond to these registration emails and select your course offerings in the given timeframe so that you will be enrolled in the courses by the university’s deadline.

Registration in the Mechanical Engineering Master’s Program courses is restricted to current students. It is not possible to audit courses, nor can the program accept transferred coursework. UT prohibits concurrent enrollment in more than one graduate program.

In the event that the Program Coordinator is unable to register a student during the normal registration period due to a registration bar, for not indicating registration preferences, or for any other reason not due to staff error, the student will be charged a late registration fee in addition to normal tuition (as determined by the University’s traditional semester calendar) as follows:

  • $25.00 through the fourth class day (second class day of summer)
  • $50.00 from the fifth through twelfth class day (third and fourth class days of summer)
  • $200.00 after the twelfth class day (after the fourth class day of summer)

New Student Orientation

We host mandatory orientation sessions each spring and fall semester for new students. Orientation is offered online, however, we highly recommend students attend the orientation session in person as they will have the ability to meet faculty, staff, and their fellow students. Information about the University of Texas at Austin, program requirements, registration, and student resources will be covered.
