    Total 30  

1 Courses in program (500-level or above) – 18 hours minimum. Mathematics (400-level or above) – 6 hours minimum. AE 590  Selected Engineering Problems – 6 hours maximum.

Additional Information
For all program options, other 500-level engineering courses that are approved by the student’s master’s committee and the graduate programs committee may be substituted for the mathematics courses. All program options require participation in the departmental graduate seminars program and passing a final examination on all work submitted for the degree. The final examinations in Option II (non-thesis) will cover all course work. The thesis option, Option I, requires submission and defense of a written thesis that demonstrates the ability to conduct and report an independent investigation.
