2022-2023 Graduate Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences


The College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences offers advanced degrees in Applied Computing, Automotive Engineering, Bioengineering, Biosystems Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Digital Production Arts, Electrical Engineering, Engineering and Science Education, Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences, Environmental Engineering and Science, Human Centered Computing, Hydrogeology, Industrial Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Medical Device Reprocessing, Photonic Science and Technology, and Systems Engineering.

Courses are offered in engineering graphics, and environmental science and policy to provide electives for students in other areas.

Degrees offered are the Master of Engineering, Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy. The MS and PhD programs serve primarily full-time graduate students. Industrial residency programs leading to the Master of Science degree are available in certain engineering departments. Financial aid, in the form of full and partial fellowships and teaching and research assistantships, is available. Other financial aid packages are available to outstanding applicants. A broad and vigorous research program provides excellent opportunities for thesis and dissertation research.

The Master of Engineering program is open to individuals who are interested in professionally oriented advanced study. Requirements for the program are a baccalaureate degree from an ABET-accredited engineering program or equivalent, academic and professional records which indicate motivation for and the ability to complete additional professional study and acceptance by the chair of the department in which the individual plans to major and by the Dean of the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences.

Graduate engineering education opportunities for practicing engineers are available in most disciplines. The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers off-campus graduate courses leading to the Master of Engineering degree through remote broadcast to North Charleston, SC, as well as streaming Internet lectures. Furthermore, graduate courses in most disciplines are offered on-campus during the late afternoon/early evening or via streaming Internet lectures.

NOTE: A student’s advisory committee aids in developing an individualized curriculum. A student’s personal GS2 Plan of Study documents their specific curriculum as determined by the advisory committee and consistent with the program guidelines, as well as Graduate School and University policies. For more information, see the most current graduate program handbook(s) and the Graduate School Policies and Procedures handbook, which include important information related to degree and program requirements, and may contain more updated policy information than what appears in this catalog.
