Master of Science

The master of science program in the Engineering Department provides a broad program for study in preparation for careers in advanced engineering areas. The graduate program covers several disciplines in engineering such as Construction Engineering, Design, Environmental Engineering, Industrial Engineering and Materials and Manufacturing.

Admission

A candidate for the master's program in engineering must have a degree in engineering. Students who have some deficiency in their undergraduate training but are well-qualified in other respects may be admitted provisionally or under special status. The department may prescribe a program of noncredit work to make up for the deficiency.

Thesis

Graduate thesis work is an important and required part of the master's degree program. Each student must submit a thesis topic that has been approved by a faculty adviser by the end of the first academic year. Various research topics are discussed in ENGR 590 and 591, Graduate Thesis Seminar I and II. Students must register in ENGR 590 before submitting a thesis topic and in ENGR 591 during execution of the thesis research to present their thesis plan. To ensure adequate faculty consultation on the thesis, the student must register for ENGR 599, Graduate Thesis, by the completion of 18 credit hours. Students must register in ENGR 599 continuously and for at least two semesters. The first two registrations in ENGR 599 must be for three credit hours, after that ENGR 599 is taken for one credit hour each semester until completion of the program requirements.

Graduate Diploma in Engineering

Admission

Admission requirements are the same as those for the M.Sc. Program.

Courses (18 credit hours)

Course work for the diploma in engineering is directed at providing the student with background in subjects relevant to the designated engineering discipline. A total of six courses ( 18 credit hours) is required for the diploma.

The courses may be selected from the 500-level engineering courses offered. A minimum of three courses (9 credit hours) must be taken in a designated area. No more than one 400-level course, not previously taken, may be considered for credit.

The courses which have been successfully completed in the diploma program can be considered as part of the master's degree requirements for students who are admitted to the master's degree studies. The diploma program may be completed in one academic year; no thesis is required.
