General Prerequisites

Graduate students seeking the Master of Engineering degree must have a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited program in Engineering or a related discipline.

General Requirements

Each student must complete between 30 and 36 semester hours of academic work, which may or may not include a design project, depending on departmental requirements. Approximately one-third of the program will be in engineering design, one-third in advanced technical courses, and one-third at the option of the major department.

In general, no 3000-level courses are applicable to a graduate degree program. The use of junior-level engineering courses by engineering students should be for leveling courses only. Any use of junior-level courses for graduate credit must be approved in advance by petition.

All course work taken to satisfy the Master’s degree requirements must be approved in advance by the departmental or program graduate advisor. The student is expected to be familiar with the various requirements of his or her particular department or program.
