A Degree for the Engineering Leaders of Tomorrow

 

My own experience at Seattle U provided a foundation from which I've been able to wear many hats and pursue a broad range of roles and experiences in my career. The most valuable aspect was the one-on-one time with world-class professors, who through knowing me well were able to help guide and shape my path. I'd highly recommend the program to fellow engineers looking to broaden their skills.

Our MSME program features small class sizes in a flexible and focused 45-credit degree program comprising a broad curriculum of 15 courses. Designed for the working professional, evening classes allow you to study while maintaining your career at the same time. Students select the pace at which they complete the program–with part-time students completing the program in two to three years and full-time students finishing as quickly as in four quarters.  Our courses do not require prerequisites, meaning that you have the flexibility to enroll in any quarter and choose your plan of study to suit your own schedule.
