Requirements For The Degrees


The Masters (MMSE) Thesis degree requires 30 total credits (24 credit hours of course work and 6 credits of thesis work on a research topic approved by your advisor). Of the 24 credits (8 courses) of course work, 12 credits must be the four required core courses, another 6 credits are chosen from an approved list of 5 non-core courses, and an additional 6 credits of technical electives must be chosen from the same approved list of 5 non-core courses or other courses approved by the student’s advisor (one course must be 800 level).

The Masters (MMSE) Non-Thesis degree requires 30 total credit hours of course work. Of the 30 credits of course work, 12 credits must be four required core courses, another 6 credits are chosen from an approved list of 5 non-core courses, and an additional 12 credits of technical electives must be chosen from the same approved list of 5 non-core courses or other courses approved by the student’s advisor (one course must be 800 level). The non-thesis degree is offered primarily for off-campus or part-time students, but is available to full-time students with permission from the graduate committee.

Part-time graduate education is available through the Engineering Outreach Program.

All graduate students must maintain a cumulative grade-point index of 3.0.
