The College of Engineering offers two Master’s Degree programs (MS, MEng) designed to prepare students for careers in industry or for further graduate study.
Both degree programs combine advanced technical work with leadership and management skills, and include a practicum requirement—a resume-building project, clinical, research, or design opportunity that can be the basis for demonstrating competency and experience. Further details about the practicum requirement for individual degree programs can be found on the individual departmental program listings below.
Master of Science Degree Programs
Specialized Master of Science programs provide advanced technical training and are ideal for the student seeking an advanced position in industry, or continued study toward a doctoral degree. A practicum design project complements the coursework.
Master of Engineering Degree Programs
The Master of Engineering program emphasizes 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.
LEAP-MS for non-engineers
Prospective students who hold an undergraduate degree in another discipline can, at the College of Engineering, apply for our unique 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.
