About

Students with undergraduate degrees in areas other than mechanical or aerospace engineering who do not wish to make up the undergraduate deficiencies required for the MSME may qualify for the Master of Science in Engineering degree from University of Washington. 

Overview

Key facts

The Engineering degree from University of Washington has the same curriculum and graduation requirements as the MSME, but does not require the core undergraduate ME courses to enter the program. Instead, MSE requires only standard math, natural science, and engineering fundamental courses for admission.

Students with undergraduate degrees in physics will only be required to complete or show equivalency in the chemistry series (Chemistry 142 and Chemistry 152) but will not be required to complete the remainder of the core, undergraduate courses for the MSE degree. In order to earn the MSME degree, physics students will be required to complete all of the core undergraduate courses for both the MSE and MSME degrees.

Our MSE graduates do not report additional barriers or difficulties finding jobs. In fact, their non-ME undergraduate backgrounds can even help them present as more well-rounded candidates for the professional engineering positions their MS in Engineering qualify them for. Hiring trends indicate that employers are no longer looking just for entry-level engineers and instead are seeking out graduates with project-based experience or specialty areas. Like their peers in the MSME, MSE students should be pro-active in selecting courses and obtaining project or research experiences that will best prepare them for the workforce.
