Master of Engineering—non-thesis

The aerospace and ocean engineering department offers a master of engineering degree in aerospace engineering.

This non-thesis option degree program requires students to complete a project and report, which may be in conjunction with other students. While the project-and-report option is not generally research oriented, it deals with other aspects of an engineering problem.
