The Master of Engineering (MEng) degree at Michigan Tech is a professional degree. It meets the needs of engineers who want to expand their knowledge in a specific discipline or to move into interdisciplinary areas as they plan careers in corporate markets as well as other professional arenas.
The MEng degree is different from the Master of Science (MS) engineering degree. The MEng is a coursework-only degree is designed for students who want to enhance their educational background, but are not interested in doing advanced research. The degree is flexible in that it allows students to gain either a greater depth or more breadth in professional skills. The MEng degree can be completed with two semesters of full-time study.
