Master of Science in Engineering - Interdisciplinary

The Most Flexible Online Master's Engineering Degree Available

Whom It’s For
We developed our interdisciplinary online Master of Science (MSE) specifically for professional engineers working in industry. You must hold an undergraduate degree from an ABET-accredited engineering program, or one with equivalent standards, to be eligible for admission. Students with closely related undergraduate degrees, such as mathematics or physics, should apply for the MS degree.

The MSE gives you the skills and knowledge it takes to manage complex projects and lead diverse teams in the workplace efficiently and effectively. As a student seeking the MSE degree, you will have no preset plan of study. Instead, you will work with your faculty advisory committee to develop a plan of study that fits your overall goals. In addition, we can work with you to define an Area of Specialization within the online Master of Science (MSE) degree program tailored to meet your specific goals and align with your company’s strategic mission. The flexibility of our MSE distance learning degree enables you to create a customized educational experience like no other.

Online Specializations are offered in these areas:
