Master of Science in Engineering

The M.S. in Engineering is a college-wide program that provides both breadth and depth of learning through coursework and research. Students can focus on one of the following concentrated areas of study:

A coordinated Master of Urban Planning/Master of Science in Engineering (transportation) program is also available. The dual degree program allows a student to earn two masters degrees after completing a minimum of 54 Credits (typically 2 ½ years). If a student were to earn those master degrees separately, a minimum of 78 credits would be required.

Master of Science in Computer Science

The M.S. in Computer Science is a departmental program offered by the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. The program provides students with a broad background in important aspects of computer science. Areas of concentration include software engineering, computer systems, computer networks, data security and artificial intelligence.

There are two tracks for this program: Regular Track and Professional Track.

Accelerated Master of Science Program

To encourage outstanding undergraduate engineering and computer science students to continue their studies toward an advanced degree, the College of Engineering & Applied Science allows qualified students to begin their master’s degree course work in their senior year. Students admitted to the Accelerated Master’s Degree Program take six graduate credits as part of the BS degree requirements and then apply to the MS at the beginning of their final undergraduate semster.
