  • Engineering Innovation, Management and Leadership (EIML)
  • Mechanical Engineering (EMAE)
  • Systems and Control Engineering (SCS)

*Official transcripts will be required once you have been accepted into the program.

*Tuition reductions are not payable directly to recipient. $26,460 of the tuition reduction will be applied in a prorated manner over the duration of the student's program of study. The remaining tuition reduction amount corresponds to a charge of $0 for taking and passing the last required course in the curriculum and will be applied after the final drop/add period for this concluding course. If a student receives other forms of financial assistance, then the student's financial assistance may require modification to account for the tuition reduction by preventing any 'over-award,' such that the total financial assistance received does not exceed the cost of attendance, as defined and determined by the Office of Financial Aid of Case Western Reserve University. Recipients of the tuition reduction must remain continuously enrolled in the program through completion. Exceptions may be granted for students who obtain a university-approved leave of absence. Students receiving the tuition reduction must maintain satisfactory academic progress at all times for the tuition reduction to remain in effect. This tuition reduction offer may be revised, rescinded or terminated at any time. All admissions and tuition reduction decisions of Case Western Reserve University are final.

Case Western Reserve University has engaged Everspring, a leading provider of education and technology services, to support select aspects of program delivery.
