Five Masters in Engineering Schools

Five Masters of Engineering Schools

The options for Master of Engineering schools include the major public universities and many of the private schools for which the tuition costs are out of reach unless you are, for some reason, a well-heeled professional returning to school or an exceptional student eligible for a scholarship. Our list of schools includes accredited, credible schools that have graduate level engineering programs which are affordable and which provide flexible schedules for students who need to work and study at the same time. Some of these schools are somewhat limited in the engineering options that are available, but in many cases there are areas of specialization within those degree programs that allow students to shape their area of concentration within a particular engineering discipline.

1. Drexel University in Philadelphia has a diverse collection of graduate programs offered by the College of Engineering. On the Philadelphia campuses there are Master of Engineering programs for Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Materials Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Computer Engineering and Civil Engineering. The degrees for Electrical Engineering, Environmental Engineering and Software Engineering are available online and on campus. Drexel also has a campus located in Sacramento, California.

2. University of Maryland University College has a Master of Science in Information Technology degree with Software Engineering specialization. The degree is an online option as well as a classroom choice at several of the UMUC community learning centers. The core courses include two that are relevant to a software engineering career, one from a technical perspective and one from a business standpoint: Information Systems Analysis, and Economics & Financial Analysis for Technology Managers. The courses focusing on software engineering include Systems Engineering, Software Verification & Validation, Software Design & Implementation, and Usability Engineering.

3. Colorado Tech University offers two Master of Engineering degrees through its Denver and Colorado Springs campuses and online as well. The Master of Systems Engineering degree explores systems development with classes in the detailed analysis of requirements, requirements traceability, documentation, modern design synthesis techniques and validation methods that verify system standards. The quality assurance component of this program will qualify graduates for work in project management. The Master of Computer Science in Software Engineering has graduate level core courses in computer science, with a series of electives in software engineering. The academic prerequisites for this degree are important; Colorado Tech can assist applicants in completing those requirements.

4. New Jersey Institute of Technology is an excellent state school that has developed a School of Engineering worthy of a national university.
