The professional master of engineering emphasizes the practice of engineering in either the private or public sector. The program focuses on developing competencies in the areas of engineering design, problem solving, and practice beyond what can be achieved in earning a bachelor of science degree in a given engineering discipline. An M.Eng. graduate student is expected to have a focus and degree designation in one of the UMD disciplines of Civil Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or Mining and Minerals Processing.
Program Delivery
  • via classroom (the majority of instruction is face-to-face)
Prerequisites for Admission
The preferred undergraduate GPA for admittance to the program is 3.00.
Other requirements to be completed before admission:
