Degree Requirements

Bachelor's Degree Requirements

A student must complete all required coursework for a total of 130 semester hours. Grades of C or higher must be earned in the required math, physics, and engineering science courses.

Master's Degree Requirements

The MS degree provides students with a rigorous, adaptive curriculum and research environment that prepares them to integrate discoveries from multiple fields and address multi-scale problems beyond the bounds of traditional engineering disciplines. It provides broad training in science and engineering oriented to solving complex problems that transcend specialized engineering disciplines or fields. This degree requires twenty-four semester hours of course work, including ENGR 6910, Research Methods, ENGR 8103 Computational Engineering and one hour of Graduate seminar, ENGR 8950. Six hours of thesis research is also required. Six hours of math and six hours of statistics are encouraged, with remaining courses related to a thesis topic. Contact the Associate Dean for Academic Programs for more information.

Doctoral Degree Requirements

The Ph.D. in Engineering encourages exploration and definition of new engineering approaches and new engineering fields with an open structure for connecting and integrating for solving problems. Graduates will be prepared for successful careers as teachers, researchers, and inventive engineers in a world of unpredictable future changes. They will learn about university-industry-government interactions by preparing research proposals, papers, and disclosures of intellectual property for competitive peer evaluation. They will also have opportunities to master essential skills for introducing products in start-up and large company environments. Typically, twenty-four hours (and six hours of dissertation research) are required in addition to the Masters coursework. The plan must contain at least 16 hours of 8000 level courses.
