Online Plan of Study Details
The MSE/MS master's program offers a wide range of flexibility in course options. After you begin your studies at Purdue, an academic advisor will help you create a Plan of Study (POS) to best fit your educational needs and career goals. Every POS varies based on student interest, time, and course load. For planning purposes, an example POS for the Interdisciplinary Master of Science in Engineering (MSE/MS) degree is available, as well as an extensive course menu that lists classes available over the next several years. You may choose one concentration (the ENML concentration is not compatible).
For planning purposes, an example POS for the Interdisciplinary Master of Science in Engineering (MSE/MS) degree is available, as well as an extensive course menu that lists classes available over the next several years. You'll start with select courses in an engineering concentration based on your goals, as well as courses in economics, IT, operations, and quantitative analysis. After completing the Purdue engineering degree requirements (30-credit hours), you'll transition into the MBA portion
Please note your MBA degree will be a General Management MBA with a well-rounded curriculum across each core area of business. Students will have access to network with each other during the Kelley Immersion experience.

There are separate tuition costs for your online engineering courses and online business management courses you will be taking in this program. The current tuition rate for the online Kelley courses is $1,000 per credit hour (Tuition and fees are subject to change every academic year.). As part of your Kelley studies, there are additional costs for books.
With this dual program, students complete the requirements for both degrees in 60 credit hours. This streamlined process saves valuable resources in the time and money spent to earn each master's degree. Completing each of these degrees separately would result in more than 80 credit hours of academic study and costs nearing $100,000
You must already hold an undergraduate degree from an ABET-accredited engineering program or one with equivalent standards. You must apply and be admitted to Purdue Online -College of Engineering. More information about admissions can be found by visiting the program's admissions page.
