Master of Engineering Program

As engineering continues to transform our world, the demand for highly skilled practicing engineers has never been greater. Companies need forward thinking engineers who possess a combination of advanced technical and professional skills—skills you can acquire through a University of Cincinnati Master of Engineering (MEng) degree program.

These programs can make a difference in your career. The Master of Engineering program provides a graduate degree that focuses on the practice of engineering in order to better serve working professionals. Rather than culminate in a research experience and a thesis, the Master of Engineering curriculum provides skills and expertise that enhance the individual's ability to contribute to the technical workforce.

For individuals whose primary interest is developing expertise and skills specifically for the workplace, the MEng program is likely the best graduate option.  The MEng degree requires completion of a minimum of 30 credit hours including:

  • Core courses – to develop professional skills (2 courses required)
  • Discipline required courses – to develop graduate level technical competencies (number of courses varies by program)
  • Capstone experience – demonstrates application of skills and synthesis of knowledge.  Several options available for completing the capstone.

The college offers several distinct opportunities:

Traditional on-campus programs – Available in all engineering disciplines offered through the college.  Program typically completed in two academic semesters plus one additional semester to complete the capstone.

On-line programs – Serving working engineers who cannot participate in a traditional program. The On-line programs offer 2 courses each semester so that the degree can be completed in 5 semesters.

Dual Degree programs - working with international partners – Students earn two degrees, one from UC and one from the international partner.

Aero-Systems Operations – specialized program provided in collaboration with the University of Bordeaux.  The program features a practice oriented program that results in two degrees, one from each university.
