The Master of Engineering program is a professional degree designed to grow your capacity to manage and lead in complex technical organizations. The program is 50% advanced engineering courses, 50% management and leadership courses, and can be completed on-campus or on-line.
The Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) is a terminal or professional degree as it is coursework only – no thesis. This graduate program is tailored to meet the needs of working professionals at their own pace or for senior-level engineering students who want to earn a graduate degree while still at SDSU*. Core classes include project management, operations, and management and leadership, culminating in an applied industry-based project. Advanced engineering courses come from civil, electrical, mechanical, or agricultural engineering disciplines.
The M.Eng. program has a dedicated industrial advisory board to provide input and guidance on expected student competencies and program outcomes.
At the time of graduation from the Master of Engineering program, students will have:
- in-depth technical knowledge in engineering;
- knowledge of contemporary leadership and management in professional practice;
- a demonstrated ability to apply engineering, management and leadership concepts; and,
- a demonstrated ability to effectively communicate verbally, graphically and in writing.
The Capstone course (GE 750 ) is used to determine whether students have met expected program outcomes. In the Capstone course, students are expected to manage and execute an industry-based project or similar complex application of technical knowledge and management analysis skills.
Course Delivery Format
The program engages students in lecture (face-to-face and online), laboratory courses, and in field-based learning experiences, depending on the elective courses selected. The program is primarily online.
