The University of Toledo College of Engineering's Practice Oriented Online Master's Program is ranked among the best in the nation by U.S. News and World Report!

The Master of Science in Engineering with a Concentration in General Engineering is a practice-oriented master’s degree specifically designed for current and future managers of technology.  This cross-disciplinary program combines a study in business management and engineering and presents an alternative to a traditional business management or technical master of science degree. This program will prepare you for greater responsibilities and leadership roles in your current or desired position.  Participants can stay current with the latest technology while remaining a productive employee, and enjoy a flexible schedule with web-based classes that can be completed when your schedule allows. 

ENGINEERING CORE COURSE WORK consists of two courses intended to prepare students to use methods of engineering analysis to solve practical problems in industry.

BUSINESS CORE COURSE WORK consists of two courses designed to acquaint engineers, scientists and technologists with financial, managerial and social issues that can help gain success in today’s marketplace.

ELECTIVE COURSE WORK AND PROJECT consists of four to six three-credit elective courses from the area of student’s concentration, with the option of a six-credit work-related project.  Elective courses may be taken on campus or via distance-learning on the internet.  Graduate offerings in the Bioengineering (BIOE), Chemical and Environmental Engineering (CHEE), Civil Engineering (CIVE), Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS), or Mechanical, Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering (MIME) departments are eligible for selection.  The optional six-credit work-related project will be accomplished in coordination with the student’s employer and utilize skills learned in this program.

Online offering of electives is limited, but electives are available for a number of disciplines. 

THE PRACTICE-ORIENTED MASTERS PROGRAM CAN BE TAKEN ENTIRELY ONLINE!
