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
  • You must attend two semesters worth of seminar, you do not necessarily need to enroll in the course both semesters

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
  • Plan C which invovles coursework ONLY.

Course Guidelines

  • Minimum 14 credits of AEM courses
    • At least 12 of these credits must be at 5xxx or 8xxx level
  • Minimum of 6 credits of non-AEM courses that pertain to your degree
  • Plan A - 10 credits or Plan B - 3 credits
  • NO MORE than 8 credits at the 4xxx level.
  • NO MORE than 8 credits can be taken S/N
  • No more than 4 seminar credits may be used.
    • Seminar credits allowed in one credit modules only.
    • Each Seminar credit counted must be different for example: AEM 8000, AEM 8400, CE 8200, CSDY 8899.
    • AEM 8000 can be used for credit only once.
  • At least one sequence in fluids, solids or dynamics.
    • AEM 8201, 8202: Fluid Mechanics I, II
    • AEM 5401, 8411: Dynamics
    • AEM 5501, 5503: Solid Mechanics
    • AEM 5321, 5451, 8421: Controls
    • AEM 5253, 8253 Computational Fluid Mechanics

Master of Engineering Requirements

It is expected that a student should complete the M.A.E degree in 2 years, and in no more than 3 years. This degree will no longer be offered to new students effect fall 2014. This degree has been replaced by the Master of Science Plan C option.

  • 30 credits of coursework
