The Master of Science in Engineering is a professional master’s program that builds on an undergraduate engineering program by offering additional depth and greater mastery in a number of technical areas.
All graduates of the Master of Science in Engineering program will:
- Deepen their knowledge and increase their mastery of technical areas that match their personal career goals.
- Be better prepared to advance in positions of technical and/or managerial leadership.
- Develop their ability to sustain a life-long career in engineering, through continuing self-directed learning and professional development activities.
This program allows students to develop their own curriculum within a structured framework for the purpose of customizing a degree to meet his/her own needs and career objectives. The student will receive a Master’s degree upon completion of ten (10) courses within the program. This program has a thesis option.
