Michigan Tech Online Learning courses are developed for the virtual classroom using the latest distance education technologies. Internet classes allow you to arrange your class attendance around your own schedule. Except for turning in assignments when they are due, your schedule is totally up to you. For more information, and the online course schedule visit our Getting Started with Online Learning website.
Distance learning research-based degrees at both the master's and doctoral level are designed to ensure fidelity to these relationships and thus maintain the high standards of Michigan Tech graduate degrees. The public defense of theses, dissertations, reports and projects should preferably occur on campus. Students in partnered programs may take up to one-third of the required coursework credits from other universities provided the course plan is approved in advance of course registration. These degrees are only open to those living and/or working in the US.
An MSEE requires 30 credits of graduate course work. The rules and regulations covering the degree can be found on the Grad School's web page and the ECE Dept's web site. Of the 30 credits required, 20 must be from Michigan Tech. Over a four year period we offer a minimum of 21 course credits in Electric Power. The faculty will work with you to identify other courses, either at Michigan Tech or other universities, to fill out of your degree program.
Michigan Tech is offering a new professional graduate program focusing on hybrid electric drive vehicle (HEDV) engineering. This Master of Engineering program provides advanced knowledge and hands-on laboratories in the design, analysis, control, calibration, and operating characteristics of HEDVs. Most courses are available through distance learning. A Certificate option and non-degree coursework is also available.
This is a 13 credit program that certifies that a student has taken undergraduate courses covering the fundamentals of electric power systems. All courses are offered on-line except for a one credit lab. The lab is offered once a year to on-line students as an intensive one week course. It is assumed that students attempting the certificate have a basic understanding of calculus and differential equations. For assistance in determining the initial class to take, please contact us.
