The College of Engineering at Michigan State University in East Lansing has launched its first online master’s degree programs in electrical engineering and mechanical engineering.
A multidisciplinary group of MSU faculty and online learning experts designed the online delivery platform.
The electrical engineering degree is customizable and offers both thesis and nonthesis plans of study. Topics covered include signal processing, electromagnetics, electronic circuit design, advanced power systems, autonomous systems, high-speed wireless communication systems, and diamond technology.
“Our new online master’s will challenge engineers to integrate their creativity and technical knowledge using state-of-the-art applications,” says John Papapolymerou, chair and MSU foundation professor in the department of electrical and computer engineering.
The curriculum will be updated continually, he says. More information on the program is available here.
The mechanical engineering degree will offer many of the department’s disciplines, including fluid mechanics, energy, dynamics and control, robotics, advanced manufacturing, biomechanics, and autonomous vehicles.
Its two inaugural tracks in mechanical engineering are thermal fluids science and engineering, as well as mechanics, dynamics, and manufacturing.
“The new online advanced degree in mechanical engineering leverages the college’s extensive research programs and industry connections in Michigan and the Midwest,” says James Klausner, chair and MSU foundation professor of the department of mechanical engineering. “It also provides online students with the full support of a faculty advisor so they can tailor their education to their interests.”
More information on the program is available here.
Each of the programs can be completed part-time in two years for a total tuition cost of $29,850. Registration is open, and the programs start when MSU begins its 2019-2020 academic year on Aug. 28.
