Progression and Additional Graduation Requirements
Satisfactorily complete the appropriate Plan of Study. A Plan of Study is a set of courses and a thesis or project activity chosen and completed in a sequence that meets the needs and interests of the individual student and the degree requirements and other stipulations of the University and the College of Engineering. Prior to or immediately upon admission to the program, students should discuss their options with the graduate advisor. There is no requirement for master's students to be full time, nor is there an on-campus service requirement. The Plan of Study must be approved by the graduate advisor and the student's supervisory committee no later than the end of the student's first semester in the program, regardless of credits earned. After this time, modifications must be approved by the supervisory committee.
