The M.Eng. Degree

The accredited Masters of Engineering Degree (M.Eng.) is awarded directly by the Speed School of Engineering and is typically undertaken by our undergraduates, starting in their last semester of the senior year. This program is designed to allow students to complete an advanced degree in just one year beyond the B.S. Degree. There are two options:

  • Thesis Option: This option requires a minimum of 24 graduate course credits and a minimum of 6 thesis credits (ME 697). At least half of the credits counted toward the degree must be completed at the 600 level. A maximum of 6 non-ME credits may be counted toward the degree. This option culminates with a thesis and a successful thesis defense.
  • Non-thesis Option: This option requires a minimum of 30 graduate course credits, and also requires that the credits counted toward the degree include 3 credits of ME 645 (Structured Research Project). At least half of the credits counted toward the degree must be completed at the 600 level. A maximum of 6 non-ME credits may be counted toward the degree.

This degree is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).
