The Interdisciplinary Engineering (MSE or MS) degree requires a total of 30 credit hours with at least 18 hours of Purdue, graduate level, engineering courses as a base requirement. The Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) concentration requirements must be met within these base requirements.
Degree requirements checklist:
_____ total core ECE courses (6 hours)
_____ total elective ECE courses (9 hours)
_____ total Math courses (6 hours)
_____ total other engineering courses (3 hours)
_____ total other elective courses (6 hours)
_____ total credit hours (30 hours)
Note: At least 18 hours must be graduate level, engineering courses taken at Purdue University.

* Engineering courses are offered by engineering schools and/or taught by engineering faculty such as AAE-Aeronautics & Astronautics, ABE - Agricultural & Biological Engineering, BME-Biomedical Engineering, CE-Civil Engineering, ECE-Electrical & Computer Engineering, EEE - Environmental & Ecological Engineering, IE-Industrial Engineering, ME-Mechanical Engineering, MSE - Materials Engineering, NUCL -Nuclear Engineering, SYS - Systems Engineering.
**Examples of non-engineering courses are BIOL - Biological Sciences, CS-Computer Science, GRAD-Graduate studies, MA-Mathematics, STAT-Statistics, etc. Only the specific non-engineering courses listed within the courses by school list are acceptable on an engineering plan of study.
The student is ultimately responsible for knowing and completing all degree requirements. This website is a knowledge source for specific requirements and completion.
Note: This checklist is an aid to help you understand the program requirements and map out a plan. The actual electronic plan of study ePOS is submitted via myPurdue during the first semester you're registered after admission to a degree program.
