About

The Master of Engineering program at Southern University and A&M College offers two degree-options: 1) a Master of Engineering degree with a thesis and 2) a Master of Engineering degree with an engineering project.

Overview

About the Engineering program

If the thesis option is chosen, a student must successfully complete a total thirty (30) semester credit hours with twenty four (24) credit hours of course work and six (6) credit hours of thesis. If the engineering project option is chosen, a student must successfully complete a total of thirty six (36) semester credit hours with thirty (30) credit hours of course work and six (6) semester credit hours of engineering project.  A maximum of two 400-level undergraduate courses may be selected to meet the credit hours requirement provided these two courses meet the conditions set forth in the course numbering section of the graduate catalog.

The thesis option is recommended for those students wishing to conduct basic research and perhaps pursue a doctoral degree in the future. The Southern University and A&M College student must write a thesis on the research and defend it.

The other feature of the program is an engineering project to be completed under the supervision of experienced engineers in industry and/or government and a graduate faculty advisor. 

The engineering project is intended as an opportunity to enhance employment skills such as communication, organization, management and teamwork.  At the same time, students will be exposed to current topics in industry, required to solve practical problems related to their coursework and to develop corporate ties with permanent employment in mind.
