The Master of Science in Engineering (MSEngr) program provides an educational experience focusing on the integration of research and technology development that allows graduates to be successful in deriving solutions to society’s most challenging technical problems. To achieve this goal, the program’s objectives are to discover new scientific principles, apply novel engineering solutions, and develop cutting-edge technology toward achieving efficient and sustainable use of resources; to integrate cross-disciplinary research and teaching that produces engineering professionals equipped to take on the more complex problems that face our state and country; and to establish and grow industry-university partnerships that drive toward and prepare the region for a diverse, knowledge-based economy.
Specific program outcomes are listed below. MSEngr program graduates will have:
- A good understanding of statistical concepts and an ability to apply this knowledge to achieve engineering solutions that most efficiently use information and resources;
- A practical knowledge of fabrication and manufacturing techniques;
- An ability to apply advanced mathematical concepts to model physical systems and engineering processes to drive knowledge based design;
- An advanced, cross-disciplinary understanding of engineering sciences, and an ability to relate physical concepts from multiple engineering disciplines;
- An ability to identify critical issues, formulate realistic solutions, evaluate alternatives, and carry out independent research to provide novel solutions to technical problems; and
- A demonstrated ability to make novel, significant contributions to the scientific and engineering body of knowledge.
