Design for the Big Picture:
Enroll in Our New Master’s Program

graduate students working on a project

Engineering graduates with a passion for complex, system-level challenges can now plunge deeper into the intricacies of design, with two new Master’s degrees:

  • Master of Science in Engineering Design (M.S.) is a comprehensive two-year, 32-credit program requiring completion of a thesis.
  • Master of Engineering in Engineering Design (M.Eng.) is an intensive one-year, 32-credit program requiring completion of an engineering international internship or scholarly paper.

Both degrees provide ample opportunity for students to sharpen their holistic design skills, while gaining substantial practical experience in the studio. Both offer a chance to “go big” and explore engineering challenges through multidimensional context-specific lenses, from beginning to end.
