The College of Engineering offers an interdisciplinary Master of Science degree. The program is administered by the Department of Engineering Education & Leadership.

Requirements for Admission

Applicants are expected to have a Bachelor of Science in an Engineering or related Physical Sciences field or the equivalent. Depending upon selected area of concentration, students might need to complete deficiency undergraduate coursework.

Requirements for the MS in Engineering

The MS in Engineering is a 33-semester-hour non-thesis program. Coursework includes:

  1. Fifteen (15) semester hours in the major concentration field of Engineering.
  2. Twelve (12) semester hours in a second concentration field.
  3. Three (3) semester hours of a graduate project or graduate research capstone.

No more than six (6) hours of upper-division undergraduate coursework can be counted toward the degree requirements. Coursework, direction of the project or research capstone, and administration of a final exam are coordinated by a committee of no less than three graduate faculty members. The chair of the committee would normally be a member of the graduate Engineering faculty.

Major areas include Biomedical, Civil, Computer, Electrical, Environmental, Engineering Education and Leadership, Industrial, Manufacturing, Mechanical, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, and Systems Engineering.

Other possible areas of concentration include Business Management, Computer Science, Economics, Engineering Education, Engineering Leadership, Information Technology, Mathematics, Physics, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Chemistry, Biology, Geology, or others approved by the student’s committee.
