Requirements


A total of thirty (30) credits, selected with the approval of the Graduate Advisor, are required. In general, the courses must be designated as CEN courses, although courses taken from other departments may be accepted with approval of the CEN department. Students in the 5-year BS/MS program are allowed to have 6 credits of upper level (400 or higher) courses count towards both the BS and MS degrees. The thesis option requires the completion of a 6 credit research thesis usually involving a theoretical or experimental investigation of a fundamental nature. The project option requires the successful completion of a 3-credit project, usually involving a theoretical or experimental investigation of an applied nature, often in conjunction with a company’s or government agency’s interests. No more than 12 credits of individual study, including independent study, directed study, and graduate project or thesis, may apply as credit toward the master’s degree.
