The Master of Engineering is offered at the main campus by the Allen School of Engineering and Technology. The Master of Science with a major in Criminal Justice and the Master of Science in Leadership are offered by the School of Professional Studies at specific locations.
Master of Engineering
The rapid pace of technological advancement has resulted in a demand for engineers with advanced training. There is growing support for the concept that the master's degree should be the first professional degree for the practice of engineering. A proposal to require one year of education beyond the bachelor's degree for registration as a Professional Engineer is now being considered in many states. Engineers with the skills necessary to lead the design of a complex system are highly sought by industry. By emphasizing advanced design skills, development and research, the Master of Engineering program addresses this need.
Trine University offers the Master of Engineering with majors in Civil, Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering. Trine's unique program offers the opportunity for students to complete both a bachelor's degree and an engineering master's degree simultaneously. Well-qualified high school students may be admitted directly into this five-year program.
Students seeking admission directly into the Master of Engineering must have a bachelor's degree in the appropriate engineering field or closely related discipline. A grade point average of 3.0 or higher on all undergraduate work is required. The Master of Engineering program requires 32 credit hours.
