Degree Overview

Graduate Programs

Students are trained for careers in engineering practice and/or further study at the doctoral level.

Students can choose between three options: MS with Thesis, MS with Project, or All-Course MS with Comprehensive Exam. In addition, students can complete a program leading to 2 MS degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Aerospace Engineering.

The Engineering Science – MS with a course focus in Robotics is an interdisciplinary program intended to train students in robotics and expand knowledge in automation leading to numerous employment opportunities in the electronic and computer industries or continued education at the doctoral level.

Normally, at least three academic years of full-time graduate study, beyond the baccalaureate degree, are required to complete the PhD degree requirements.

Students can enter the PhD program with or without a MS degree.

This advanced certificate program is designed as a stand-alone credential for local professionals seeking to enhance their background in cutting-edge manufacturing technologies at the graduate level, as well as for currently enrolled MS or PhD students to gain a credential which will complement their degree program.
