Their academic background is enhanced by extensive industry experience. Blended Internet delivery The blended Internet option creates a pathway for students to complete the MSEM in less than two years. Blended Internet delivery combines the rich faculty/student interaction that is the hallmark of an MSOE education with the flexibility of online learning. The amount of time students spend in class is reduced, while time spent on project-focused learning is enhanced. MSOE’s blended classes meet fact-to-face during alternating weeks. Meetings occur during the evening on “even” numbered or “odd” numbered weeks each academic term. Online learning activities are scheduled during non-meeting weeks and are facilitated via MSOE’s Blackboard instructional platform. Digital lectures, interactive discussions, investigative case studies, computerized simulations and synchronous chats are examples of online learning experiences used by MSOE faculty. 100% Online delivery Geography is not a constraint for students interested in completing the MSEM at a distance. In addition to the Blended, Internet format mentioned above, there also is an option to take courses via 100% online distance delivery. The rich faculty, student interaction that is the hallmark of the MSEM is replicated in online classes creating dynamic and flexible learning environments. Students can choose which format best fits their lives, while advancing their learning and professional skills. Financial Aid All MSOE graduate students are eligible to apply for the Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan.
