Master of Science Program
The Master of Science program is designed to prepare each student to make an effective contribution to engineering research, development, production, design or management. In addition to leading to the M.S. degree, this program provides a basis for continued study leading to the Ph.D. degree. The program consists of a set of graduate courses, independent research, and defense of a thesis based on this research. The program requires 15 hours of graduate course work and one semester of participation every other year in instructional activities as a teaching assistant. Each student selects a major professor and an advisory committee to assist him or her in planning a program of course work and research. There is no foreign language requirement.
