Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

MSOE offers four-year degree programs in ten engineering disciplines. In each program students complete laboratory intensive courses in their field of specialization plus numerous cross disciplinary courses in other engineering fields, and appropriate course work in the humanities, social science, business and communication. There are opportunities for minors in engineering management, marketing management, technical communication, mathematics, chemistry and physics. The Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree is a transfer only, evening program. A total of 192 credits are required for the B.S Engineering degree. Students who transfer from technical colleges with AAS degrees usually receive 50 to 70 transfer credits. Double major programs that enable students to earn two B.S. degrees in five-years are available in engineering/technical communication, engineering/business and architectural engineering/construction management. Also available are five-year BS in AE (Structural)/MS Structural Engineering and BS in civil engineering/MS in civil engineering. Undergraduates have the opportunity to gain additional experience by conducting industrially sponsored applied research through the university's Applied Technology Center and research consortia in fluid power, Bio-Molecular modeling, rapid prototyping and other areas. A variety of international student exchange programs are available to interested students including a four-year degree in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, or in international business with the Lubeck University of Applied Sciences, Germany, whereby students earn degrees from both universities. Students also have the opportunity to study for one semester at the Czech Technological University in Prague, Czech Republic, and Lille, France, and Florence University of the Arts, Italy.
