Earn a Master’s in Engineering Degree Online

Compared with other disciplines, online master’s programs in engineering are relatively rare. This is because engineering requires hands-on work. However, online master’s programs in some areas of engineering – such as management and software engineering – can easily be found, and more courses are going online every semester.

The list below provides links to some top-quality distance learning programs in civil engineering, engineering management, industrial/mechanical engineering, and software engineering.

  • Auburn University offers its Master of Science in Industrial Engineering and Master of Software Engineering programs through videotaped lectures.
  • Carnegie Mellon University offers the Master’s in Software Engineering and the Master’s in Software Engineering Management online.
  • Colorado State University grants degrees for online study in engineering management with concentrations in civil engineering and mechanical engineering.
  • Columbia University offers a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering online and accepts up to six transfer credits.
  • Drexel University has an online program leading to the Master of Engineering Management (MEM) degree.
  • Eastern Michigan University grants Master’s of Science degrees in Engineering Management online with several options for special certifications such as SME’s Certified Engineering Manager (CEM) and Certified Manufacturing Engineer (CMfgE).
  • The Georgia Institute of Technology – consistently a top ten school in U.S. News & World Report – offers online master’s degrees in mechanical engineering.
  • North Carolina State University offers the Master of Civil Engineering (MCE) degree through distance education. Areas of concentration include environmental engineering, geoenvironmental engineering, and water resources/coastal engineering.
  • Oklahoma State University’s online Master’s of Science in Engineering and Technology Management program has been named a “Best Buy” in distance education.
