Applicants with various backgrounds and different goals can be accommodated in the program of graduate study leading to the degree of Master of Science in Engineering, and many of the courses are scheduled "after hours" to enable the working engineer to continue to broaden his/her education on a part-time basis.
Areas of Concentration
After admission, students are required to select an area of concentration.
Civil engineering applies the laws and principles of science and mechanics to design, modification, construction, and building of structures of all kinds, to resist and harness the forces of nature, and to improve the quality of life.
Graduates have an array of job opportunities with companies in well established industries like energy, defense, communications and design.
This concentration prepares students to meet the needs of regional petrochemical, aerospace, manufacturing and oil industries by employing emerging technologies in the classroom and in research settings.
Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering
The marine industry needs engineers with advanced degrees and offers them high paying career opportunities. Many graduates are naval architects and marine engineers who work in various industries.
