Policies and Procedures, Graduate Engineering
The educational objectives of the various graduate programs are that graduates will excel in industry, government, and academia and will demonstrate a commitment to lifelong learning and professional development. By the time of graduation, students are expected to achieve the following educational outcomes:
- Demonstrate in-depth knowledge and competence in the field of study.
- Develop advanced skills in acquiring, evaluating, and integrating new knowledge.
- Demonstrate ability to communicate effectively.
- Demonstrate ongoing understanding of professional responsibility.
Each program offers a core of courses that emphasizes fundamentals and a set of electives that adds specialization and practical application. It is the intent of these programs that all graduates be well equipped as engineering specialists or as professionally skilled program managers.
The master of science in engineering programs require a minimum of 30 credits for either the thesis or non-thesis track. The dual MSE/MBA program’s credit requirements vary according to the undergraduate business courses completed. A savings of two to four courses results from the combining of the two degree programs.
Please note that a waiver of any requirement for the degree must be approved in writing by the Office of the Dean of the School of Engineering. A cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better is required for graduation, and, if applicable, completion of all thesis requirements. A student may not graduate with more than two course grades lower than B-minus. A student may not graduate with a grade of F in any of the courses attempted.
