Master of Engineering Degree Provides Greater Options for Students

Starkville, Miss. – The online Master of Engineering (MENG) program offered through Mississippi State University’s (MSU) Bagley College of Engineering (BCoE) now offers students both a thesis or a non-thesis option and a reduction require hours for degree completion.

The MENG was created as an interdisciplinary option for students wanting flexibility in shaping a program of study unique to their specific personal and professional goals. Student are required to complete 30 coursework hours, and students can take courses from any of the distance engineering programs offered through the BCoE and up to 12 hours of courses in business, geosciences, and other fields as permitted by their advisor.

“This is a great opportunity for our online students,” said Tamra Swann, Distance Education Coordinator for the MSU Bagley College of Engineering. “This degree offers optimal flexibility for students who truly want to personalize their graduate degree to fit their current job or future opportunities. The addition of the thesis option will also be attractive to students who are already heavily involved in their employer’s research agenda.”

“The Bagley College of Engineering prides itself on offering academically and professionally accredited master’s and PhD programs online,” said Dr. Kari Babski-Reeves, Associate Dean of Research and Graduate Studies for the Bagley College of Engineering. “The changes to the MENG program will hopefully result in more working professionals finding the best degree for their unique situation.”

Students can complete the 30-hour program in less than three years. For more information about the MENG program visit our Master of Engineering page.
