The Master of Engineering program (MENG) at UConn targets practicing engineers, providing a convenient way to enhance their performance value and learn important practical skills while earning a master’s degree. Currently, the MENG program is offered at:
- East Hartford — Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology (CCAT)
- East Hartford — Pratt & Whitney (Restricted to UTC Employees)
- Farmington – Cell & Genome Science Building
- Groton — UConn Avery Point Campus
- Storrs — UConn Storrs Campus
- Waterbury – UConn Waterbury Campus
- Windsor Locks — United Technologies Aerospace Systems (UTAS) (Restricted to UTC Employees)
MENG program allows students to apply to the University Graduate School and then take courses toward a master’s degree in engineering or take up to two MENG courses as a non-degree student and then apply to the Graduate School for admission to a master’s program. Practicing engineers can just take classes as a non-degree seeking student for strictly professional development.

Course Registration Policy:
Part-time M.S. students are allowed to take MENG distance learning course only if they register and pay through the MENG program. Prior approval from the advisor (Jiong Tang for ME students) is needed. Here, the status ‘part-time’ refers to those students who pursue degree on a part-time basis (with full-time job elsewhere) regardless of the total credits enrolled. MENG students have priority in enrolling in distance learning courses
Textbooks may be purchased at the UConn Bookstore or any other bookstore (i.e. Amazon.com). Please indicate the class that you are taking when placing your order.
Virtual Labs/Special Software: Students have access to many analytical software programs used in various engineering classes. The SkyBox has a complete list of available software.
Library Resources: Distance engineering students have access to all library resources without having to come to the campus.
Capstone Projects: As their last class, students select projects related to company work or develop a project in conjunction with a UCONN professor. The student must identify a UCONN Professor who is willing to serve as his capstone advisor and must receive approval on his project before registering for the project. The final report and final presentation may be conducted at company location. Capstone Project Guidelines provide more detail on the requirements.
IMPORTANT: If you want to drop a course that you are currently registered for please send an email request to the MENG program office at email@example.com.
