Accelerated Graduate Program in Engineering - One Year MSE Degree


Accelerated Graduate Program in Engineering - 1 year MSE Degree Description

The Master of Science in Engineering (M.S.E.) prepares students to innovate and design engineered systems to improve human life in a sustainable world. The M.S.E. program educates engineers to be technical leaders in industry as well as to pursue higher education in Biomedical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Manufacturing Operations, and Product Design and Manufacturing Engineering.

What does accelerated M.S.E mean?

  • High-quality, hands-on learning experience in half the time. Complete the program in just one year.
  • ONLY one extra course per semester (compared to traditional two-year MSE program). 
  • Program is completed in one academic year cycle: fall, winter, summer semesters (< 12 months).
