Engineering Science M.S. (Hartford)

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Departments

The Master of Science in Engineering Science degree serves students whose educational needs do not correspond to the standard professional engineering curricula.  It allows students to tailor a Plan of Study to their particular requirements. Each student’s course of study is developed in close consultation with the adviser to allow meaningful and strongly directed interdisciplinary approach.  The degree awarded in this area is not, nor is it intended to be, accredited for practice. Students entering the Engineering Science program are expected to hold a Bachelor of Science degree in one of the traditional engineering disciplines. Applicants not holding such a degree must have evidence of coursework in at least:

Mathematics, through Ordinary Differential Equations (three terms or 12 credits)

Physics (two terms)

Chemistry and/or Engineering Materials (one term)

Mechanics (one term)

Electronics/Circuits (one term)

Probability and Statistics (one term)

Students lacking one or more of these courses are expected to take corrective action before entering the Engineering Science program.
