Students work on a research project in conjunction with a professor who serves as the academic adviser. The topic is chosen based on mutual interests and needs. Course work typically focuses on subjects related to the research project. In addition to the Institute requirements and those listed above, the M.S. requires a total of 30 credits, six of which come from the thesis. Of the 24 credits of course work, a minimum of 12 must be at the 6000 level with a minimum of nine of these 6000-level courses from MANE (or courses that are cross-listed with MANE courses), and a minimum of 15 credits overall must be from MANE (or courses that are cross-listed with MANE courses). No more than six credits can be from outside of Engineering or Science.
