What will I learn?

The Ingram School of Engineering has state-of-the-art multimedia-equipped classrooms, laboratories, and equipment designed to foster engineering education and research and promote active learning through lectures and hands-on experience. Graduates will be ready to make immediate contributions in professional careers or pursue doctoral studies leading to academic and research-related careers.

Students develop multidisciplinary engineering skills with academic depth and industry-driven application focus, necessary for a highly rewarding career in engineering.

Course Work

The engineering program provides a practical, industry-driven focus via a long-term, targeted technical project or research thesis related to real-world engineering applications. The project or thesis will be conducted in partnership with local industries and may involve off-campus collaborations.

The program has two options: a traditional thesis option focused on an academic research topic and a directed research option focused on a practical, industry-driven project. Both options require a minimum of 34 hours with engineering and general core courses, multidisciplinary electives, a seminar and at least six hours of thesis or project. Students choose from four separate concentration areas: civil, electrical, industrial or mechanical and manufacturing.

Career Options

Employment growth in engineering and engineering-related jobs that require a master’s degree is expected to be strong over the next decade and beyond, according to recent data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Graduates of this program will be ready to enter the workforce in industrial, service, and government organizations or to pursue doctoral studies leading to academic and research-related careers.
