Students pursing a MS with thesis degree should enroll in CHEN 7950 Graduate Seminar each semester of enrollment. These students may include six (6) hours of CHEN 7990 Research and Thesis as part of the 30 hours. After completion of the thesis, the student must pass a final oral examination defending the thesis. The non-thesis MS degree option does not have a residency, seminar, research or final oral exam requirement. The non-thesis degree can be earned entirely through the Engineering Online Graduate Program.
