The MSE program enables graduate engineering professionals to further their problem solving skills through the application of advanced engineering principles and methods. The strength of this program is in its flexibility. The program offers students the opportunity to advance their quantitative skills through a series of mathematics and modeling based courses and provides for their choice of specialty courses in electrical engineering or mechanical engineering and/or other related fields. The program allows for breadth and depth of engineering topics and culminates in either a project or final paper where the student must integrate the knowledge and skills learned in the program.
The MSE is aimed toward engineers who are involved with industrial projects. Students are encouraged to take engineering courses both within and outside their discipline. Courses include topics such as simulation and modeling, operations research, quality engineering, advanced engineering mathematics, finite element analysis, advanced mechanics, fluid power systems, data communications, control systems and advanced electronic systems.
