Students can be admitted to the program either Fall or Spring term. Application deadline for Fall Term is May 15th, Spring Term deadline is December 1st. The area director of your chosen area will be your faculty advisor. Please contact the area director with questions about the technical content and pre-requisites needed.
Our admission criteria are based on undergraduate GPA in an ABET accredited science or engineering program together with other evidence of your ability to succeed in highly technical graduate courses. This includes factors such as work experience in the chosen area of study, and graduate courses completed with good grades in the chosen area of study.
Students must have a broadband connection (cable, fiber or DSL) in order to view lectures. For additional student computer requirements, please see our frequently asked questions page.
You may take our on-line courses through University Extension (UNEX), even if you are not in the degree program. Up to two UNEX courses can be transferred into the degree program if you later decide to apply and are admitted to the degree program. Please see the UNEX tab for more information about enrolling.
Master of Science in Engineering- (Aerospace, Computer Networking, Electrical, Electronic Materials, Integrated Circuits, Materials Science, Mechanical, Manufacturing and Design, Structural Materials)
Each student’s transcript will list courses by department name and course number, in the same manner as they are for the on-campus programs.
Master of Science in Engineering
Additional Certificates of Specializations will be Awarded with Degree for Engineering Management and Systems Engineering
Students that complete the course requirements for the specialized areas of study will receive an additional certificate of completion for that specialization.
