This program prepares you for professional practice with a broad, applied education with courses in several technical areas. With input from industry, Northern Arizona University created courses to enhance knowledge, understanding, and/or develop skills critical to today's practicing engineers.
The flexibility of an electrical or computer engineering degree can't be overstated; this highly lucrative degree could mean working in aerospace, computers, or many other areas. A bachelor's degree will get you into the field, but a master's will provide you with even more opportunities. If you're looking to enhance your electrical or computer engineering knowledge while making yourself more marketable, our program is right for you.
Our program is intended to meet your educational needs as a practicing engineer. You will have the opportunity to enhance and/or develop the skills, knowledge, and understanding that are critical to today practicing engineers.
Students wanting to earn their bachelor and master’s degrees may qualify for our Accelerated program, which allows students to count six units toward both degrees, shortening the time to graduation.
To receive a master’s degree at Northern Arizona University, you must complete a planned group of courses from one or more subject areas, consisting of at least 30 units of graduate-level courses. (Many master’s degree programs require more than 30 units.)
You must additionally complete:

The Master of Engineering is a non-thesis professional degree, based primarily on course work and/or on an engineering project designed with the guidance of a faculty advisor to address a need or problem specific to their engineering field of study (Civil, Environmental, Electrical, or Mechanical Engineering). This degree program is designed to provide a broad, practice-based education.
Student Learning Outcomes
Demonstrate the ability to apply graduate level critical thinking skills to formulate and solve advanced civil (electrical/environmental/mechanical) engineering problems.
Individual program admission requirements include:

Accelerated Bachelor's to Master's Program
This program is available as an Accelerated Undergraduate/Graduate Plan. Accelerated Programs provide the opportunity for outstanding undergraduates working on their bachelor’s degree to simultaneously begin work on a master’s degree. Departments may allow students to complete both degrees in an accelerated manner by approving up to 12 units applicable toward both degrees. Students must apply to the accelerated program and the master’s program by the application deadline, and meet all requirements as listed on the Accelerated Bachelor's to Master's Programs to be considered for admission. Admission to programs is competitive and qualified applicants may be denied because of limits on the number of students admitted each year. Be sure to speak with your advisor regarding your interest in Accelerated Programs.
