Reach the next level of expertise with a master’s degree in Architectural Engineering. You’ll enjoy convenient scheduling and one-on-one interaction with expert faculty who bring their real-world experience to the classroom. MSOE’s Master of Science in Architectural Engineering (MSAE) degree offers an emphasis in either structural engineering or in mechanical-electrical-plumbing (MEP) systems. Students that select the MEP option have the ability to choose elective courses to focus on mechanical, electrical, or plumbing systems. It meets the needs of architectural, civil or structural engineers who desire increased knowledge to design structural, mechanical, electrical, or plumbing systems for modern buildings. With the MSAE degree, you’ll enhance your analytical and design capabilities and increase your professional flexibility. For recent graduates with a civil or architectural engineering degree, earning an MSAE will accelerate the Professional Engineer credential. Program Overview The MSAE requires that you have completed an undergraduate curriculum in either architectural engineering or civil engineering, or another closely related field. The MSAE program has two specialty tracks, one that focuses on structural systems, and one that focuses on mechanical-electrical-plumbing systems. Each specialty has a group of core classes in that particular specialty area, as well as graduate elective courses that allow students to specialize in courses that are of interest to their career. A complete list of the core and elective courses for each specialty can be found in the graduate catalog. Undergraduate students in the AE program have the option to apply in their junior year to add the MSAE degree as... [-]

MS Engineering Management Often called “The Engineer’s MBA,” a master’s degree in engineering management combines your technical background with a core business curriculum. The blended-Internet delivery format provides flexibility. Studies have found that most successful companies are managed by people with experience in the core business of the company. In the case of technology-based companies, this means engineers or other technically oriented individuals. Too often, the lack of a solid background in management has prevented engineers from rising to decision-making positions. MSOE’s Master of Science in Engineering Management (MSEM) graduate program is based on the philosophy that, for American companies to grow and compete internationally, their technical personnel must have the tools to effectively manage and participate in the decision-making process. The engineering management program is best described as a master’s degree in general management with a technological orientation. Designed to accommodate busy working professionals, courses are available via blended-Internet format. This combines the benefits of face-to-face interaction with the convenience of online learning. Most classes meet one evening per week. Advantages of the MSEM degree: The MSEM is designed to complement your undergraduate technical degree. The MSEM is a technology-oriented program, meeting the specific needs of engineers and other technical and business professionals progressing into management. Most faculty members in the MSEM program have a Ph.D. and at least one of their degrees in engineering, mathematics, science or business. Their academic background is enhanced by extensive industry experience. Blended Internet delivery The blended Internet option creates a pathway for... [-]
