Graduate Degrees

Graduate Degrees

The College of Engineering offers several graduate degree programs and many of our programs offer courses at “professionally convenient” times on campus and/or in various distance formats.

Participation in Professional Engineering Outreach does not guarantee admission to a graduate degree program. However, the advisement provided through PEO can enhance the probability of admission. Degree program applicants must follow the admission process administered by the Office of Graduate and Professional Education. For some programs, this may include submission of GRE scores, with minimums for combined quantitative and verbal scores set by each engineering department. Please refer to the desired department’s web page for further information.
