With the rapidly changing technological landscape in engineering industries, an advanced degree or continuing education is becoming increasingly necessary. Several departments offer master of engineering degrees that are 30 credits of coursework only and require no thesis or creative component for completion. You can take up to three courses (or nine credits) before applying for admission to the programs. Many of the courses for these degrees are offered online. Students in the master of engineering degree program are typically self-funded. For more information about registration, fees and delivery methods visit Iowa State Online.
