Master of Engineering: General Engineering
The Master of Engineering “General Engineering” concentration is a multidisciplinary program of study with an online and distance learning modality. This is particularly attractive to practicing engineers and professionals in related fields who seek a wider base of knowledge. The MENG in General Engineering requires students to complete 30 credits of graduate level study. Students in this degree concentration will be required to study a set of core disciplines, as well as a range of elective courses. A graduate of the Master of Engineering General Engineering concentration may be employed in a range of specialized occupations, which may depend on their previous engineering experience and education, as well as their graduate-level concentration options. Upon graduation, students may be more competitive candidates for a wide range of engineering related careers.
The Master of Engineering (MENG) degree emphasizes improvement of essential technical and professional skills, while a traditional Master of Science degree emphasizes research or a comprehensive understanding of a research area. The Master of Engineering program is designed for practicing engineers who prefer to attend classes in the evenings and on a part-time basis. This affords engineers the opportunity for continuing education without workplace interruptions.
The program consists of 30 credit hours:
- 9 credits of Common Core Courses
- Professional Communication & Information Management – 3 credits
- Engineering Project Planning & Management – 3 credits
- Advanced Math/Engineering Analysis – 3 credits
- 18 credits of Engineering Courses
