North Carolina A&T University Offering One-Year Master’s Degrees in Engineering Disciplines

North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro is now offering the opportunity for graduate students to earn master’s degrees in engineering in only one year. One-year master’s degrees are now being offered in bioengineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, industrial /systems engineering and mechanical engineering, as well as computer science. The new program offerings require students to begin in the fall semester and complete in the summer of the following year. The 30-credit programs require the completion of a total of 10 graduate courses.

“Our College of Engineering departments made the decision to ensure that our degrees were cost-effective from the student point-of-view,” said engineering Dean Robin Coger. “Now that a student can earn a master’s degree in any of our departments with only a one-year commitment, it quickens the time in which students are able to graduate and apply the knowledge they gain for the benefit of their careers.”

    This is great news! Are these classes available online? If not, are the classes offered in the evening hours to accommodate working individuals?

    That is Great!
    I wish this could be an online process as well. I need my masters but can only take classes online. Would this be possible? I teach mechanical engineering technology and is the reason why online classes work best for me.

    This is excellent news! Also, the Morgan State University School of Engineering offers a completely online Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (M.S.E.E.) degree program with several concentrations. Two of the more populat concentrations is Cyber Engineering and Computer Engineering. In addition, Norfolk State University offers a completely online Master of Science degree program in Cybersecurity.
