COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING & SCIENCE
The M.S. in Engineering program is interdisciplinary, offering students the opportunity to specialize in certain areas of engineering, with a strong emphasis on research.
The curriculum consists of 30-36 credit hours, depending on the track the student chooses.
Apply fundamentals from engineering, medical sciences and mathematics to solve problems in medicine and biology, and to understand, modify or control biological systems.
Contact Dr. Steve Jones, Program Coordinator, for more information.
Transform various natural resources into practical products, including paper, gasoline, medicine and computer microchips.
Contact Dr. Eric Sherer, Program Coordinator, for more information.
Design and supervise the construction and maintenance of buildings, bridges, roads, railroads, airports, harbors, channels, levees, pipelines, power plants and water and sewage systems.

Industrial Engineering (Offered Online and On Campus)
Industrial engineers are often responsible for designing new processes or analyzing and improving existing processes. Industrial engineers make things better in any industry—from automobile manufacturing and aerospace to healthcare, forestry, business, finance, leisure, and education. An industrial engineer works to identify and eliminate waste and unnecessary costs, as well as to improve the safety of the worker. Many of our students are awarded a Six Sigma Black Belt certification and/or a Six Sigma Green Belt (an industry-recognized quality control program that utilizes process-improvement techniques). Industrial engineers work across a number of specialties, including operations research, systems, manufacturing, production, management science, safety or ergonomics.
