Master's Admission

Engineering education beyond the baccalaureate degree may have one or any combination of the objectives below, some of which may relate only indirectly to a graduate degree:

  • Upgrading: taking advanced work to raise the level of one’s formal capabilities.
  • Updating: keeping one’s education current.
  • Diversification: seeking to obtain formal education in another field, but not necessarily at a higher degree level.
  • Maturing: adding new perspectives on one’s own field without raising the academic level of the education.

Students choose to pursue a master’s degree for one or more reasons. Start your journey today.
