Master of Science (MS)

The Ingram School of Engineering

(ISoE) currently offers the graduate program "Master of Science, Major in Engineering."

With input and support from major industries, this program is designed to produce highly qualified graduates with multidisciplinary theoretical and practical skills necessary to perform effectively in all professional contexts. ISoE serves students and employers by offering accredited and relevant engineering program with input from an active Industrial Advisory Board representing local industries.

17% Growth Employment in Master's Level Occupations

Projected to grow by almost 17 percent from 2016 to 2026, the fastest of any education level.

The degree is comprised of four separate concentration areas

Civil engineering books on a table

Civil Engineering

Electrical engineering equipment


Students using motion capture technology


Students using manufacturing engineering equipment


To provide a broad, multidisciplinary perspective, students majoring in a given concentration take elective courses from non-engineering disciplines and may take elective courses from the other three concentrations as well. Thus, a Master's student may major in industrial engineering but may take electives from mechanical and manufacturing engineering, business, computer science, and math.

Career Opportunities

According to recent data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment growth in engineering and engineering-related jobs requiring a master’s degree is expected to be strong over the next decade and beyond. Graduates of this program will be ready to enter the workforce in industrial, service, and government organizations or pursue doctoral studies leading to academic and research-related careers.
