Schedule of studies. Students have flexibility to design their programs of study to meet their specific scheduling needs.

Optional Two-Year Path: Take two courses per semester (fall/spring) and a summer business course and complete a one-credit-hour project in the summer.

Optional Three-Year Path: Take one engineering course per semester (fall/spring) and a business course each summer and complete a four-credit-hour project during the final year of study.

Requirements for the Master of Engineering in Power Engineering degree with a concentration in Electric Power are as follows:

  • a total of 30 graduate credits
  • at least six electrical engineering courses, four of which are in the power engineering area
  • twenty-one to 27 credits of course work
  • one to 7 credits of ME project (option available in summer term)

The Electric Power concentration allows students the maximum flexibility to design their program of study to meet their specific needs.

Sample options:

  • Student A may wish to concentrate strictly in the power area, taking seven power engineering courses and conducting a significant seven-credit-hour project in the power area.
  • Student B may wish to take four power engineering courses, two other engineering courses and three business courses and conduct a one-credit-hour project.

Students select a faculty advisor to serve as both academic advisor and ME project advisor. The student should also select an industry mentor for the project.

The extent of the ME project will be appropriate for the number of project credits selected.

The project topic will be selected through mutual agreement of the student, mentor and advisor.

Upon completion of the project work, students prepare a formal report and submit it to the project advisor. When the report is approved by the advisor, the project credits will be formally granted.
