College of Engineering

The College of Engineering offers the following graduate programs:

These programs offer opportunities for advanced study and research designed to prepare students for leadership roles in engineering careers with industry, government, educational institutions, and research organizations. For master’s degree programs, a thesis option is recommended for students who are planning a career in research or who contemplate pursuing a doctorate in one of the engineering disciplines. A nonthesis option is also available for students who desire a practical industrial applications-oriented degree.

The Department of Biomedical Engineering offers a matrix of academic tracks based on segments of biomedical engineering and/or areas of clinical emphasis. Specifically, the program has emphases in the following areas: biomaterials, biomechanics, and bioimaging. The biological areas covered are orthopedics/dental tissues, cardiovascular systems, and neural systems. The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering includes programs of study in structures, environmental engineering—transportation, water resources, hydrology, geotechnical engineering, solid mechanics, and materials. The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering includes programs of study in Computer Engineering, Systems and Control, Digital Signal Processing, Communications, and Electronic Materials and Devices. The Department of Mechanical Engineering includes programs of study in thermal and fluid systems, mechanical systems and design, mechanics and materials, and manufacturing engineering and systems.

All College of Engineering departments offer Master’s programs from their own discipline and research emphases: Department of Biomedical Engineering offers M.S. in Biomedical Engineering, Department of Civil Engineering offers M.S. in Civil Engineering and Master of Civil Engineering, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers M.S. in Electrical Engineering and M.S. in Computer Engineering, and Department of Mechanical Engineering offers M.S. in Mechanical Engineering and M.S. in Advanced Manufacturing and Enterprise Engineering. In addition, the College of Engineering offers an interdisciplinary Master of Science degree in Advanced Materials Engineering that features state-of-the-art technical knowledge and multidisciplinary courses with focus in two concentration areas: 1) Multifunctional Electronic, Dielectric, Photonic and Magnetic Materials; and 2) Multifunctional Biomedical Materials. The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering administers the M.S. in Advanced Materials Engineering degree program.

A Doctor of Philosophy degree in Biomedical Engineering will train students in the fundamental sciences and engineering related to medicine. Areas of focus include biomechanics, biomaterials, bioimaging, and the following systems: musculoskeletal/dental, cardiovascular, and neurological.

A Doctor of Philosophy degree in Electrical Engineering offers an in-depth and integrated study focused in one of the following areas: Computer Engineering, Systems and Control, Digital Signal Processing, Communications, and Electronic Materials and Devices.

A Doctor of Philosophy degree in Environmental Science and Engineering offers research emphases in Water Resources, Environmental Quality, Environmental Remediation, Pollution Control, Conservation Ecology, Spatial Analysis, Remote Sensing, and Natural Hazards.

A Doctor of Philosophy degree in Mechanical Engineering offers an in-depth and integrated research focus on three concentration areas: Thermal and Fluid Systems, Design and Manufacturing Systems, and Mechanics and Materials.

A limited number of assistantships and fellowships are available to qualified students. Financial assistance is awarded on a competitive basis.
