Program Description:

The College of Engineering offers a Master of Engineering (MEng) degree program based on course work only (no project or thesis required) and aimed at professionals who intend to augment or update their knowledge in engineering and applied science, and especially to students who have no easy access to an institution of higher learning because of geographical location, work or family committments, or physical impairment. The MEng consists of a generic interdisciplinary track based on thirty-five semester credit hours of instruction, and of specialized tracks consisting of between thirty-five and forty-three semester credit hours. Although courses delivered by traditional means, such as direct classroom teaching, television teaching, or videocassette instruction, are allowed, the primary instructional mode of the MEng program is via Internet-based courses.
