Areas of Study
A Master of Science in Engineering (M.S.E.) degree is a good fit for students who would like to take courses in a variety of engineering topics. We won't limit you to just one area of engineering.
Our program incorporates classes from the traditional master of science degrees in Biological, Chemical, Civil, Computer Systems, Electrical, Environmental, Industrial, Mechanical Engineering, and Transportation Engineering.
Interested in an engineering management career? This could be just the degree you need!
Not an engineer? Check out our Operations Management Master's program.
- Applicants must have a bachelor of science in engineering from an engineering program accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (or equivalent accreditation), and
- A grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or better (A=4.0) on all course work taken prior to receipt of the engineering bachelor degree, or
- A GPA of 3.0 or better on the last 60 hours of course work taken prior to receipt of the engineering bachelor degree.
An entrance exam, such as the GRE, is not required.
Interested applicants with a GPA between 2.50 and 2.99 on all course work prior to receipt of Bachelor of Science in engineering will be considered on a case-by-case basis, and conditionally admitted.
Those with a bachelor of science in engineering technology may be interested in the Master of Science in Operations Management degree (MSOM).
