How it Works:

The MEng program provides flexibility in course selection to allow students to gain sufficient depth and breadth in their area of concentration while complementing these with courses outside their concentration area. The student will choose courses to form a coherent and balanced program in systems engineering. SE MEng students should make their course selection in consultation with their faculty advisor. The program is designed to be completed by full-time students in one academic year. Students who graduate from the SE MEng program are eligible to apply to the SE post-MS PhD program.

Master’s Handbook

The SE MEng Program Planning Sheet is found in the Master’s Handbook, under the Forms tab. The planning sheet provides a “snapshot” view of the curriculum and the Handbook includes policies, program requirements, logistics and contacts.

Internship Program Option: Engineering with Practice

Master’s students may add the optional “with Engineering Practice” designation to their degree by completing an approved internship in their field of study. The program option recognizes the power of combining rigorous academic coursework with supervised real-world research or industrial applications. Participating students add value to their academic experience with a related internship that enables them to both develop and apply their technical, project management, and leadership skills.
