Master's Degrees in Engineering and Computing

Miami University is a (Carnegie) comprehensive doctoral institution with high research activity, and attracts faculty who have a passion for advanced research and scholarship, as well as a commitment to teaching. The university selectively invests in excellent graduate programs. 

The College of Engineering and Computing offers four master’s degrees as described below. Students may select either a research or project option, working closely with a professor.

Programs of Study

Chemical Engineering

The Master of Science in Chemical Engineering focuses on chemical and biological process industries, biomedical engineering, and the paper industry. The degree is applicable to students with backgrounds in chemical engineering, chemistry, bioengineering, biomedical engineering, mechanical engineering, and related fields.

Computer Science

The Master of Computer Science prepares students for careers in business, industry, or to pursue doctoral studies. The program offers students the choice of a research-based thesis or non-research tracks. Applicants should have a strong background in computing. This is also an appropriate program for students wishing to do research in bioinformatics.

Computational Electrical and Computer Engineering

The Master of Science in Computational Electrical and Computer Engineering prepares students for future engineering practice that requires engineers to master both electrical/computer engineering and computational methods. It is suited for individuals with a background in electrical engineering, computer engineering, or a related discipline. The degree includes courses in computer programming, computer-based modeling, and electrical/computer engineering.  

Mechanical Engineering

The Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering prepares students for future engineering practice that requires engineers to master both mechanical engineering and computational methods. It is suited for individuals with a background in mechanical engineering or related areas such as physics. The degree includes courses in computer-based modeling, advanced mechanics of materials, control of dynamics systems, and mechanical behavior of materials as well as a limited number of additional courses in science, mathematics, or engineering.
