      MS MSEM Course Only Degree Plans
      1. MSEM Construction Management Course Only
      2. MSEM General Engineering Management Course Only
      3. MSEM Energy Management Course Only

      Normally, students are initially admitted to the 33-hour Course-Only Option.  After the first or second semester and based on academic performance and availability of funded projects, students may transfer to the Project or Thesis options. Students interested in the Engineering Management concentration will not complete a thesis or project; the concentration is a course-only option.  

      Each student's program is planned under the direction of a chosen major professor prior to completion of the first semester of graduate study. The student will be admitted to candidacy when the degree plan is approved by the graduate dean.
