  • 24 months
    Duration
University rank #201 (ARWU) Houston, TX, United States
In addition to continued study of a broad range of Geosensing fundamentals, candidates for the MS degree enjoy intensive exposure to a specific field of geosensing systems engineering research. 

Overview

Both thesis and non-thesis tracks are offered in the Master of Science in Geosensing Systems & Engineering.

Completion of a Master of Science with thesis requires that each student perform original research advised by one of the core faculty of the Geosensing Systems Engineering and Sciences program. This faculty member will be the Chair of the thesis defense committee. Ordinarily, the Thesis Committee Chair will arrange financial support for the student and the research. A thesis master’s degree typically requires two years (or more) of full-time effort to complete the course work, plan and perform the research, and write and defend the thesis.
