The College of Engineering offers work leading to the Master of Engineering (M.E.) degree with six concentrations: Biomedical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Manufacturing Engineering.
The Master of Engineering degree requires
- Admission of all degree seeking students to candidacy for the degree after the completion of nine (9) graduate credit hours in residence at the University;
- A minimum of thirty-three (33) graduate semester hours of coursework, including at least six (6) credit hours of mathematics, three (3) credit hours of laboratory based courses, three (3) credit hours of special problems in engineering applications (design project), and six (6) credit hours of electives with the consent of the advisor.
Substitution within the core courses may be permitted with the consent of the advisor and the department head.
For unconditional admission to the Master of Engineering degree program, the student must have a bachelor’s degree in engineering or science from an accredited program and must have the necessary prerequisite courses. If the evaluation of a student’s undergraduate degree program reveals prerequisite deficiencies, the student must eliminate them by satisfactorily completing each of the prerequisite courses prescribed before unconditional status is achieved. None of the courses used to eliminate undergraduate deficiencies may be used in the student’s program of study for the Master of Engineering degree.
For admission with unconditional classification, in addition to the above, the student must possess a grade point average (GPA) of 3.00 on a 4.00 scale.
For admission with conditional classification, in addition to the above, the student must have a GPA between 2.75 and 2.99 or a GPA between 2.50 and 2.74 and a passing score of 70 on the Fundamental of Engineering (FE) examination.
All students applying for admission must submit to the Graduate School a completed Graduate Application form and two copies of transcripts from all colleges and universities previously attended.
