The Master of Engineering (MENG) degree is a 27 credit graduate degree merging the benefits of technical engineering courses with professional development classes. The target audience includes students who are employed full time in industry as practicing engineers, as well as those interested in expanding their skills before entering industry.
Students may follow a specific concentration path in Mechanical, Electrical, Materials Science or Civil Engineering or they may seek a general MENG degree taking classes from several disciplines with approval of their their faculty advisors. All MENG students ultimately complete and defend a final project, typically connected to a work related problem requiring a solution.
MENG students are offered unique opportunities to take many classes remotely. The program offers classes during late afternoon or evening hours to facilitate working schedules of part-time students. This affords the utmost in educational quality, providing highly relevant skills for today’s engineering workforce, at the greatest convenience.
MENG students can earn the degree part time (often sponsored by their employer) or full time. Students earn their MENG degree on their time, at their pace and their convenience, while providing schedule flexibility to balance studies with work or other life responsibilities.
UConn’s School of Engineering offers MENG classes at the UConn’s Avery Point, Waterbury, and Farmington campuses, at participating employer facilities, and at other available locations. Students can attend classes at any of the locations below:
- 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)
Master of Engineering vs. Master of Science Master of Engineering program is focused on improving professional skills like communications and project management as well as technical skills. The Master of Science program is more focused on in-depth analysis and research of a specific topic.
