LEAP: A Master’s Program for non-Engineers

Leverage your undergraduate background into an exciting career in engineering.

Do you have a bachelor’s degree in the Liberal Arts, Business, Fine Arts, or Education? For over 25 years, the Late Entry Accelerated Program (LEAP)  has made it possible for students with non-engineering backgrounds to obtain a master’s degree in engineering. LEAP students are typically between the ages of 25 and 35 with undergraduate degrees in diverse fields including business, education, English, fine arts music, natural sciences and psychology.

How LEAP works:

Each LEAP student works with our staff and faculty to design their unique program of study based on their academic and professional background.

To prepare for success at the master’s level, students build a foundation in engineering with some undergraduate coursework prior to completing their master’s degree of choice in:

Biomedical Engineering Electrical and Computer Engineering
Materials Science and Engineering Mechanical Engineering
Product Design and Manufacture Systems Engineering
