Elective Graduate Courses

The elective graduate courses may be chosen from any of the available graduate engineering courses, including the emphasis-specific courses, or other graduate courses from different disciplines. The graduate electives from disciplines other than Engineering must be pre-approved by the Graduate Program Director of the School of Engineering.


Capstone Experience (3 - 6 credits)

The capstone experience route for each student must be approved by the Graduate Program Director. From among the three Capstone Experience routes, students normally select either the capstone MSE project route, for six credits, or the capstone MSE thesis route, for six credits. The project and thesis routes are equivalent: the Master’s Project is reserved for proprietary work, whereas the Master’s Thesis is reserved for non-proprietary work. The Capstone Experience requires the following courses:
