Master of Engineering Degree Requirements

Requirements for Graduation


The Department of Industrial Engineering offers the Master of Engineering (MEIE) as the coursework only degree.


The program of study leading to the MEIE degree consists of 30 credits. At least 50% of the course work must be taken from the Approved IE Department Course List. This means that students can take up to five electives from engineering disciplines outside the department and/or other areas of interest outside the college.


The MEIE degree is also offered by distance education for qualified applicants. The courses with section numbers M70 – M79 are designated as online.


Although there is no oral exam, students will be required to complete an exit interview with one of IE faculty members.


Note that NMSU reserves the right to change the program requirements without prior notice. Information in the NMSU Graduate Catalog takes precedence over any other information.
