This is a very flexible program that permits advanced study from numerous disciplines in engineering and the sciences.
Applicants are expected to have an accredited undergraduate degree in science or engineering. Candidates with other appropriate backgrounds may be considered.
Bridge Program: To ensure academic success in their graduate studies, students may be required to take additional undergraduate or graduate courses before beginning graduate curricula. This program of courses will be individually-designed in consultation with the student’s graduate advisor. Such courses are not counted toward degree requirements.
A minimum of 30 credits is required. A thesis or project may be included.
Seminar : In addition to the minimum 30 degree credits, all students who receive departmental or research-based awards must enroll each semester in a graduate seminar. The seminar is selected in consultation with the graduate advisor.
15 credits, selected in consultation with graduate advisor: 6 credits of 600-level mathematics 3 credits of 600-level physics, chemistry, or biology 6 credits of 600-level engineering courses
PROJECT OR THESIS (optional):
3 or 6 credits: selected in consultation with graduate advisor
15 credits selected in consultation with graduate advisor
The elective credits must form a meaningful and coherent program integrated with the specialization in science or engineering.
