There are two components of non-thesis M.S. in Engineering track:
Concentration (track-specific) component. This component allows the student to pursue a series of courses that focus on a specific field of engineering and serve as the student’s primary engineering discipline.
Track electives component. This component allows the student to take courses in either engineering or science with approval of the student’s adviser.
The track can be tailored to meet the individual student’s academic goals and research interests. Students seeking to take course work and conduct their research in the chemical and life science engineering track should contact the graduate program coordinator or department chair of Chemical and Life Science Engineering for detailed information about that track.
Students seeking the non-thesis M.S. degree are required to take a minimum of 30 semester credits of approved graduate courses. Each student must complete 15 semester credits in concentration course work and 15 semester credits in track electives course work.
Each non-thesis student must have a plan of study by the end of the first semester or prior to completing nine credits. This plan of study (and all revisions) must be approved by the student’s adviser and the assistant dean for graduate affairs of the School of Engineering. The student’s adviser must review/approve all course work in advance of enrollment. At least half the credits required in the student’s program must be designated as 600 level or above.
In addition to the general requirements for admission to graduate programs in the Graduate School and the School of Engineering, applicants to the chemical and life science engineering track must have a B.S. degree in chemical and life science engineering or a closely related discipline.
Students may begin a course of study in either the fall or spring semesters for the engineering programs, although a start in the fall semester is preferred.
