Return to Programs Return to: Programs

M.Eng. students will primarily take courses to deepen and broaden their knowledge, usually in a focused area of study. If a project is included in the degree program, the student will have to involve a professor as an adviser. In addition to the Institute requirements and those listed above, the M.Eng. requires a total of 30 credits. If a project is taken, a minimum of 12 credits of coursework must be taken at the 6000 level with a minimum of nine of these taken within MANE (or courses cross-listed with MANE courses). If no project is undertaken, a minimum of 18 credits must be at the 6000 level, with a minimum of 12 of these taken within MANE (or courses that are cross-listed with MANE courses).

Students must also take part in a culminating experience consisting of:

  • an approved sequence of three integrated or related courses with at least two courses in MANE, only one of which may be at the 4000 level. One of these courses must involve a project or design experience which integrates or synthesizes knowledge from other courses taken in the master’s program, or
  • a six-credit project, or
  • an internship/practicum involving a minimum of one summer and one semester full-time work in an approved setting.
