Any requirements for coming to campus for research or other visits (thesis defense, etc.) is determined by the individual academic program.
Aerospace Engineering – MS and PhD
The Department of Aerospace Engineering offers graduate programs leading to the Master of Science (thesis and non-thesis option) and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. Major areas of study include fluid dynamics; structural mechanics; flight mechanics and controls; flight test engineering; and design optimization. The Raspet Flight Research Laboratory, a unique university facility for graduate aeronautical teaching and research, is operated as an integral part of the department. Other department facilities consist of: a low speed wind tunnel; a water tunnel; a blow-down supersonic wind tunnel; and a universal testing machine laboratory. Members of the faculty provide primary leadership in computational simulation and numerical grid generation.
Civil Engineering – MS and PhD
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers graduate programs leading to the Master of Science (thesis and non-thesis option) and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. Major areas of study include: structures; geotechnical; water resources; transportation; construction materials; and environmental engineering. Research laboratories include: capabilities in the areas of structures and wind analysis; geotechnical engineering; water quality and environmental engineering; surveying; transportation; and construction materials.
Computational Engineering – MS and PhD
The Bagley College of Engineering Online welcomes computational engineering to the distance program.
Computational engineering is an interdisciplinary curriculum with both Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy Degrees available. Programs of study are personalized to the individual student.
Many classes in computational engineering are taken through the departments of Aerospace, Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science, Math, and others.
Electrical and Computer Engineering – MS and PhD
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers graduate programs leading to the Master of Science (thesis and non-thesis option) in Electrical and Computer Engineering, as well as the Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical and Computer Engineering.
The Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering offers graduate programs leading to the Master of Science (thesis and non-thesis option) degree in Industrial Engineering and a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering.
- Major areas of study include:
- industrial systems;
- operations research,
- manufacturing systems;
- management systems engineering; and
- ergonomics/human factors.
Research laboratories include facilities in Human Systems Engineering, Logistics and Transportation Engineering, Management Systems Engineering, and Simulation and Advanced Computation.
The Master of Engineering is an interdisciplinary, non-thesis degree awarded through the Bagley College of Engineering. The program is designed primarily for the professional engineer and is available only in a web-based, distance format. The program is restricted to off-campus students only.
