Online degree options

Two mechanical engineering graduate degrees can be earned online: the MSME degree and the M.Eng.ME degree.  The degree requirements for the online options are the same as the on-campus options, so the diploma for online programs is the same diploma awarded to on-campus students.  The only difference for on-campus vs. online programs are the courses you choose and the cost structure.

Additional information regarding our online options can be found at the Engineering Online website.  The cost structure for online programs is explained at this website.

Online students have a maximum of five years to complete the degree requirements.  The application process is very similar to our other programs which is described at our Applying to MechSE page. Applications for the online programs are not required to submit GRE scores; after the application is submitted, our administrators will waive the requirement of the GRE for students applying to the online program.
