Engineering (MSE)

CIP Code = 140101

For students desiring to pursue a concentration in biomedical, chemical , civil, electrical, industrial, or mechanical engineering, or communications systems, a baccalaureate degree with a major in the same engineering discipline from an Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) accredited program is the best preparation. Students who do not possess this background are not discouraged from applying, but, in general, must expect some nongraduate credit background work in order to pursue their graduate program effectively and successfully. As the master’s degree is generally accepted as a higher level of intellectual accomplishment than the baccalaureate degree, the student must expect his/her program to be structured accordingly. The student will be required to remove any deficiencies in mathematics, science, engineering, and communication. In particular, students with a baccalaureate in mathematics or the physical sciences should expect remedial courses stressing engineering analysis, synthesis, and design.
