Masters Degrees

A master of engineering degree is intended as a terminal degree designed for those who do not expect to pursue a doctoral degree. It is particularly well-suited for students and engineering professionals who want to upgrade their skills and who are looking for more leadership roles. A conventional thesis is not required in this instance – a capstone experience and/or extra course replaces the research required of one taking a master of science degree program. A minimum of 30 credits are required for graduation with some programs requiring more. Many of the courses taken for the master of engineering degree are the same as for the master of science degree. Should a student decide to pursue the master of science degree early enough in their program of study, the change can made relatively easily.

A master of science degree offered through the Kate Gleason College of Engineering should be considered by those with more interest in research and who may want to consider pursuing a PhD. All degrees require a minimum of 30 credits for graduation and s6 credits of thesis work.
