The Master of Science in Engineering Science program allows the engineer, scientist, or business professional to customize a curriculum to achieve individual career aspirations. Students choose and complete any three certificates from  Rensselaer at Work programs, each of which requires 9 credit hours. Upon completing three certificates, the student then completes a final Integrative Project that draws upon the learning acquired in each of the three certificates.
