How is the Master of Engineering degree different from a Master of Science degree?

Case Western Reserve University’s Master of Engineering degree is practice-oriented, not research-oriented. As such, a thesis is not required for the Master of Engineering degree. Instead, you will complete a set of six core courses specifically designed to address the practice of engineering in today’s business environment. In addition, you will enhance your technical competence by selecting four elective courses in a chosen discipline of engineering.

Please fill out the form on this page and you will receive personal assistance to learn more about how you can apply to this program. Our admissions advisor will contact you to answer questions and introduce you to the application process.
