The College of Engineering has a range of options for pursuing advanced degrees, from traditional residential programs, accelerated programs, and fully online degrees. Across this range, the College offers possibilities for students no matter where they are in their careers and lives. One particular advantage of fully online degrees is that the programs can fit into students’ lives without disrupting their careers—a clear benefit in this time of economic uncertainty.

I explored multiple programs at different universities. As an engineer, I didn’t want to leave my career, so I chose this master’s degree program because it tied in perfectly with what I loved to do as an engineer and my current role.”
