This program can be taken on a full-or part-time basis and is well suited for practicing engineers in the greater Buffalo metropolitan area.

Programme Structure

Engineering Project

  • To complete the 30 credit hour requirement, the student must conduct an engineering project representing six hours of credit, resulting in a written technical report and a satisfactory oral presentation in a seminar.
  • In a ME project, students are typically involved with the planning, benchmarking, and implementation of certain engineering activities centering on the application of specific engineering principles and methodologies in real world settings, leading to measurable improvements in quality, cost, efficiency, build-to-order flexibility, time-to-market, customer satisfaction, or other key performance indicators. The focus is on innovative application of engineering knowledge to add value, not on creation of new knowledge.
