MSOE’s Master of Science in Architectural Engineering (MSAE) degree offers an emphasis in either structural engineering or in mechanical-electrical-plumbing (MEP) systems. Students that select the MEP option have the ability to choose elective courses to focus on mechanical, electrical, or plumbing systems. It meets the needs of architectural, civil or structural engineers who desire increased knowledge to design structural, mechanical, electrical, or plumbing systems for modern buildings.

With the MSAE degree, you’ll enhance your analytical and design capabilities and increase your professional flexibility. For recent graduates with a civil or architectural engineering degree, earning an MSAE will accelerate the Professional Engineer credential.

Curriculum Format

The MSAE is a flexible program, with courses offered evenings with the option of a two-, three- or five-year program. Classes meet one evening per week during the academic quarter. Students enrolled in MSOE’s bachelor in architectural engineering program may pursue a dual degree.

The MSAE program requires completion of 45 graduate credits, with at least 36 of the credits obtained in technical specialty courses. There are two curriculum tracks available – the Capstone Report Track and the Capstone Project Track.
