Master of Science

Experience real world, practical education.

The Master of Science curriculum has for decades stood as the hallmark of practical graduate education firmly grounded in the needs of industry and the experience of its faculty and students. The learning environment is defined by the years of industry experience brought by its faculty and the daily work experience of its students.
