Master of Science Requirements

It is expected that a student should complete the M.S. degree in 2 years, and in no more than 3 years.

  • 30 total credits
  • GPA of >2.8 for graduation
  • Two semesters of AEM Colloquium attendance

Plan Type

  • Plan A which invovles independent research, completion of a thesis and a final oral.
    • AEM 8777 -- 10 thesis credits
  • Plan B which invovles a completion of a project and a final oral.
    • AEM 8880 -- 3 credits Final Project

Course Guidelines

  • Minimum 14 credits of AEM courses
    • At least 12 of these credits must be at 5xxx or 8xxx level
