The M.S. consists of a core set of courses designed to develop applied analytical expertise across disciplinary boundaries, with direct applications of advanced design principles to system design, management and control. The expertise developed in the core curriculum is reinforced through focus areas that provide flexibility for the student, including alternative energy, mechanical, and manufacturing engineering. The degree will offer options for students culminating in a master’s thesis, an applied project or portfolio option. This 30-credit-hour degree program is offered on the Polytechnic campus.

Financing Your Education

Fellowships through ASU and external resources, along with research and teaching assistant positions, offer many alternatives to fund your education expenses at ASU—often for multiple years or even the full course of study. Fellowship resources are limited, and many fellowships require U.S. citizenship or the right to work in the United States.

Fellowships are awarded on a highly competitive basis as part of the graduate program application process.

Financial Aid
ASU has many financial aid options. Almost everyone, regardless of income, can qualify for some form of financial aid. In fact, more than 70 percent of all ASU students receive some form of financial assistance every year.

Admission Requirements

All students are required to meet general university admission requirements.
