Master of Science (M.S.) Degree

Admission to the Master of Science program is open to students with an undergraduate degree in engineering, mathematics, statistics, computer science, physics, quantitative management or a similar field. The M.S. degree does not require a thesis, although a student interested in pursuing research or possibly continuing their education beyond a master’s degree is encouraged to write one.

Master of Engineering (M.E.) Degree

Students seeking admission to the Master of Engineering program must have a bachelor’s degree from an ABET-accredited curriculum, or have taken sufficient articulation course work to meet the minimum requirements specified by ABET. The M.E. degree does not require a thesis, and is generally considered a terminal degree.
