M.S. Degree

The Masters of Science (M.S.) Degree is the traditional post-bachelors degree, awarded by the Graduate School. There are two options for the M.S. degree to satisfy the requirement. Both options require 30 credit hours as follows:

  • Thesis Option: 24 course credits at the 500/600 level + 6 credits of CECS 690 (M.S. Thesis credit). A minimum of 12 credits (of the 24) must be taken at the 600 level. A maximum of 6 non-ME credits may be taken. This option culminates with a thesis and a successful thesis defense.
  • Project Option: 27 course credits at the 500/600 level + 3 credits of CECS 696 (M.S. Project). A minimum of 12 credits (of the 27) must be taken at the 600 level. A maximum of 6 non-ME credits may be taken.
