MSE or MS Worksheet

The Interdisciplinary Engineering Degrees (MSE or MS) require 30 credit hours total with at least 18 hours in engineering and 18 hours from Purdue.  Courses can count in either or both categories and most are 3 credit hours.  You may add a concentration to your degree but a concentration is not required.  If chosen, the concentration requirements must be met in addition to the regular degree requirements.  A concentration is chosen on the e-POS form and shows on the transcript, not the diploma.

The list of courses offered via distance is found here - https://engineering.purdue.edu/ProEd/courses/courses_by_school and may be sorted by semester/year or school.  Please keep in mind that this list is subject to change and you will need to review it frequently throughout your degree program.  Changes may be made to your POS in the future if they meet the degree and concentration requirements.

 

Degree requirements checklist:

_____ total number of engineering courses *  ( ≥ 6 courses / 18 hours)
_____ total number of Purdue courses  ( ≥ 6 courses / 18 hours)

 

* Engineering courses  are offered by engineering schools and/or taught by engineering faculty such as AAE-Aero & Astro, BME-Biomedical Engineering, CE-Civil Engineering, ECE-Electrical & Computer Engineering, IE-Industrial Engineering, ME-Mechanical Engineering.   Examples of non-engineering courses are CS-Computer Science, GRAD-Graduate studies, MA-Mathematics, STAT-Statistics, etc.

This form is not your plan of study (POS), it is a worksheet to help you understand the program requirements. The actual POS is submitted via myPurdue during the first semester you’re registered after admission to a degree program.
