Engineering Degree Programs

Graduate Programs

Research-oriented Master of Science (M.S.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees are offered through the Graduate School and hosted by the academic departments of the School of Engineering. Cross-disciplinary research areas of expertise can be found here.

The Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) degree is an advanced professional degree awarded by the School of Engineering and especially designed for engineering practitioners who may prefer to work while doing professional study. It is also suitable for individuals who apply directly from undergraduate school -- but the thrust of the program is toward professional practice in engineering rather than research or teaching. Master of Engineering degrees are available in the following disciplines:

Bachelor of engineering degree programs in biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,

The bachelor of science degree in computer science is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, The accredited program in computer science is the primary major administered by the School of Engineering. Computer science added as a second major by students outside the School of Engineering is not an accredited program.
