The requirements for the M.S. degree in Engineering with an Automotive Systems Engineering concentration are listed below.  This in a cross disciplinary degree in the College, with primary responsibility in Mechanical Engineering.  Each student’s program will be developed by the student’s committee as an individualized program and will be constructed in accordance with sound academic practices to provide the kind of study most suitable to the student’s needs.  The proposed program must be submitted on a Program of Study form to The Graduate School office for approval during the first semester of coursework.  It is that program, rather than the example which follows, which will constitute the student’s graduation requirements.  Candidacy for the degree is typically filed in the semester prior to the student’s anticipated graduation semester. 


The general guidelines for the Automotive Systems Engineering concentration are:

Area I    Mathematics or Engineering Analysis                                     3 hours

Area II   Approved Electives in Mathematics, Science, or Engineering    6 hours

Area III  Engineering Concentration (details below)                            18 hours
