Master of Engineering (M.Eng.)
The Master of Engineering degree is a practice-oriented, interdisciplinary degree designed to meet the needs of students who are interested in furthering a career in engineering with a business/management emphasis. Students will determine their degree plan in consultation with the graduate advisor of the respective engineering department of the student's primary focus. In addition to course requirements, students must complete a design project and a final written report. This phase of the program introduces students to the problems and solutions faced by practicing engineers. The program is designed for both the industrial professional who is seeking a career enhancement and also to the new baccalaureate graduate who wants to continue to study in order to be able to enter the work force with well-defined and honed professional skills.
DEGREE LEARNING OUTCOMES
The Degree Learning Outcomes of the Master of Engineering program are to produce graduates who will:
o Be prepared for successful careers in industry, government or non-profit establishments,
and will have an appreciation for lifelong learning.
o Have the capacity to use advanced analytical and experimental methods needed to solve engineering problems.
o Have a breadth of knowledge that fosters an awareness of and skill in interdisciplinary approaches to problem solving.
o Have a keen sense of professionalism and a commitment to work toward the betterment of society and the world.
Students must complete a graduate program of 36 units of which are divided into:
- 18 units of graduate engineering courses
- 12 units of graduate business courses
- 6 units of a project
- The graduate courses in engineering can be taken from one or more of the following
departments in the College of Engineering:
- Aerospace Engineering
- Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering
- Electrical and Computer Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering (Bioengineering is housed in the Department of Mechanical Engineering)
- At least one-half of the units required for the degree must be courses at the 600- and 700-level
- The project is industry-oriented and integrates engineering and business knowledge attained through coursework and experience.The six units of project registered under ENGR 798 must be supervised by two faculty members: one from Engineering and the other from Business.
- Aerospace Engineering
- Civil Engineering
- Environmental Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
