General Requirements

All candidates who seek to earn the Master of Engineering degree will be required to complete one of the three options identified below:

Masters Option Core Courses Electives Other
Project Report 9 credits 18 credits Project Report:  XEGR/TRSP 795 (3)
Thesis 9 credits 18 credits Thesis:  XEGR/TRSP 799 (3)
Course Only 9 credits 21 credits N/A

Each student will select one of the three options in collaboration with a faculty advisor. All departments may not offer all of these options. At the time of application, the School of Engineering will notify students of the available options.

Program of Study 30 credits

Core Courses 9 credits

A core requirement of three interdisciplinary courses (9 credit hours) will be required of all students entering at the master’s level. These courses are carefully designed and coordinated to stress the interdisciplinary nature of the subject matter. The content serves as the philosophical foundation on which all other materials tailored for a specific student are based. The courses are as follows:

Elective Courses 18 credits (21 credits for Course Only option)

Elective credits are directed toward building strength in a sub-discipline. For example, the following civil engineering-related sub-disciplines are available: applied mechanics, environmental engineering, geomechanics, geotechnical engineering, groundwater hydrology, hydrology, infrastructure planning and engineering, structural engineering, structural mechanics, and transportation engineering. For Electrical Engineering there are sub-disciplines in the areas of electrophysics, communications and signal processing, and computer engineering.

Other 3 credits

The Thesis option and Project Report option would take three (3) credits of Project Report or Thesis.
