Colorado State University Announces Two New Online Master of Engineering Degrees
FORT COLLINS - Colorado State University OnlinePlus announced two new master’s of Engineering degrees to meet the needs of today’s workplace. The master’s of Engineering in Electrical and Computer Engineering and Engineering Management have both been designed with industry input and are taught by renowned faculty on the forefront of engineering research.
”Whether students are looking to increase their salary, earn the opportunity to work on higher-level projects, or simply need to keep up with the pace of innovation, these degrees can help them get there,” said Tony Maciejewski, department head and ECE professor.
The Master of Engineering with an Electrical and Computer Engineering specialization equips students to make a bigger impact within their companies.
“Electrical and computer engineers are in demand across virtually every industry, allowing students to pair their passion with this advanced education,” said Maciejewski. “Designed with input from industry leaders, our curriculum has been reinvented to meet modern workforce needs, and has the flexibility to evolve as job sectors continue to shift.”
As one of the few online graduate degrees in this discipline, the ECE program features areas of focus, including Computer Engineering, Power and Energy Engineering, and Systems Engineering.
“Students will walk away from this program with knowledge that goes far beyond a textbook and skills to provide real-world solutions for tomorrow’s challenges,” said Maciejewski.
The new online Master of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering with an Engineering Management specialization features a curriculum that blends engineering processes with business elements to give students the perfect combination of management concepts and technical focus.
The curriculum follows the American Society of Mechanical Engineers knowledge-base standards, and covers concepts in engineering project management and maintenance; business analysis, communication, finance, and marketing; and systems engineering foundations and architecture.
“Modern business and technology demands require more complex and timely responses for the design, development, and commercialization of products and processes on a global basis,” said Gary Caille, engineering professor. “This degree gives students the skills they need to assume leadership roles within their industries or organizations, helping them think critically about complex issues.”
