Students also have an opportunity to learn from adjunct professors who are respected professionals in the technology community and government agencies.

How LOGin Distance Education Works
LOGin graduate course lectures are recorded live in the classrooms of the Lyle School of Engineering each semester as those courses happen. This classroom format includes the lecture, presentation slides, written notes and also all questions from students in the classroom as well as the professor's answers and comments.
High-quality video of the lectures are loaded to our server within 24 hours of the on-campus course. Students download and view the lecture within seven days to stay current with course content and requirements.
LOGin students benefit from seeing and hearing classroom interactions as well as questions from students and professors' answers. Students themselves can ask their professors questions by telephone, fax, email, or regular mail.
Students take all examinations at the education office of their installations. Professors explain specific procedures and instructions to the education office staff, who relay them to students. The education staff distribute and proctor the examinations, then forward them to the professor for grading.
