Doctor of Philosophy These rigorous, research-based programs are offered in six engineering disciplines. All PhD programs train individuals to be at the forefront of academia and industry. For information about the PhD program in your discipline, visit the department web site.
Master of Engineering Eight Master of Engineering degree programs are geared to early career professionals and recent college graduates seeking advancement as technology leaders in industry. Emphasizing advanced technical training as well as the leadership and management skills you need to lead in project management, product development and design, the program includes an individual or team-based practicum design project and the flexibility to choose courses offered through BU’s renowned Questrom School of Business. The 32 credit degree program can be completed in as little as one year of full time study. Part-time and distance learning options are also available.
Master of Science Nine specialized Master of Science programs provide advanced technical training and are ideal for the student seeking an advanced position in industry, or continued study towards a doctoral degree. A practicum design project complements the coursework, although some students may opt to complete a thesis instead.
- Late Entry Accelerated Program Students who want to switch careers and enter the technology field, but whose undergraduate degree is not in engineering, can earn a master’s degree in any of eight engineering disciplines through the Late Entry Accelerated Program (LEAP). Students begin by taking foundational undergraduate engineering courses, then transition into graduate-level coursework to complete a master’s degree. Learn More
