If you are interested in pursuing a graduate engineering degree on a part-time basis, PEO staff will discuss your area of interest and help devise a program which meets the degree requirements and your specific concentration. If undergraduate prerequisites are required, these should be taken prior to taking any graduate level courses; PEO staff will assist in this scheduling process.

Bioinformatics placeholder

Bioinformatics (MS) (PSM) (PhD)

The BINF-CERT, MS, and PSM, offer two concentrations—Computational Sciences Concentration (CS, CS1, CS2) and Life Sciences Concentration (LSC, LSC1, LSC2). While the PhD leverages the Bioinformatics & Computational Biology core curriculum found in the other degree programs to build a strong research emphasis. Each degree program support students from different educational backgrounds and with different career aspirations.

Biomedical Engineering students

Biomedical Engineering (PhD)

The PhD program is built on a first year core curriculum with advanced curricula that are based on the research the student will perform for the thesis. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of Biomedical Engineering, faculty advisors for BME graduate students may have primary appointments in the BME departments, or in other departments and colleges at UD.

Chemical Engineering graduate students

Chemical Engineering (MCHE) (PhD)

The low student-faculty ratio in the department, approximately 6 to 1, permits close interaction between students and faculty—a critical component of the graduate experience at Delaware. Our graduates consistently obtain employment in outstanding academic and industrial institutions.

Civil Engineering workspace

Civil Engineering (MCE) (MAS) (MS) (PhD)

Areas of study include Environmental Engineering, Structural Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Transportaiton Engineering, Coastal Engineering, Water Resource Engineering, and Civil Infrastructure Systems.

Computer Science Professor Lori Pollock with colleagues

Computer Science (MS) (PhD)

The MS program prepares students for doctoral studies or for professional employment. It is normally completed in four semesters of full-time study. The PhD is designed to prepare students, for academic careers and for careers in government and industry research labs.

Cybersecurity (MS)

The ECE Cybersecurity Master’s program requires 30 credit hours in either a thesis, no-thesis option or online offering. The non-­thesis option requires all 30 credits to be completed through coursework, while the thesis option requires 24 credit hours of coursework and six credits of master’s thesis (CPEG 869).


Electrical Engineering (MS) (PhD)

Active areas of research in electrical and computer engineering include cybersecurity, computer systems, network science, big data, machine learning, bioengineering, clean energy, communications, signal processing and controls, computer and sensor networks, electromagnetics and photonics, and nanoelectronics materials and devices.

Materials science graduate students

Materials Science (MMSE) (PhD)

At the master’s level, the academic program consists of a core series of required courses covering those aspects of materials science considered essential to a fundamental understanding of materials. The requirements for the Ph.D. degree include more specialized materials courses, as well as additional mathematics and materials physics courses.

Fuel Cell Research

Mechanical Engineering (MSME) (PhD)

While most incoming graduate students have a degree in mechanical engineering or other closely related fields of engineering, our graduate programs are also suitable for students with degrees in physics or mathematics. Students with a Bachelor’s degree may opt to pursue a Ph.D. directly.

Particle Technology Students

Particle Technology (MEPT)

The program is intended for engineers, either newly graduated or with industrial experience, who want to develop their expertise in particle technology for industrial application.

Particle Technology Students

Robotics (MS)

By emphasizing both theory and practice, the MSR program is designed to meet the needs of professionals seeking advanced training as well as scholars who want to explore robotics through structured, guided instruction. Graduates of the MSR program will understand the fundamentals of robotics and be prepared to develop and deploy robotic devices.
