The M.Eng. degree is perceived to be more practically oriented in comparison to the M.S. degree. Students in the M.Eng. program will complete a research project chosen by the student and a professor who serves as the student’s academic adviser. Course work typically focuses on subjects related to the research project topic.
In addition to the Institute requirements and those listed above, the M.Eng. requires a total of 30 credits, 6 of which come from the master’s research project. All courses used to earn the master’s degree must be taken at the 4000- or 6000-level. No 4000-level (or 6000-level) courses used to complete undergraduate degree requirements may be counted towards the completion of a graduate degree.
