Interdisciplinary research with integration between theory and practice resulting in six semester hours of thesis and 24 hours of coursework.
A 30-semester-hour coursework, non-thesis option that requires three hours of Technical Reporting, with no research component.
Areas of specialization for both programs include Mechanical, Electrical, Biomedical, Civil, and Materials Joining/Welding.
If a student keeps up a strong GPA and is accepted in the M.S. Engineering program, up to two senior classed with additional material can be taken as dual credit (counting towards both undergraduate and graduate requirements). If the student's senior design project fits with an ongoing research project, the remaining graduate courses and research/thesis could be completed in one additional year, including summer work.
