About the Program

ClassroomThe Online M.S. in Engineering (MSOL) program is the first of its kind at UCR and is designed for working professional engineers who wish to advance their knowledge in a field and enhance their value in the workplace. Students in the program receive course materials including lectures, notes, assignments, and announcements over the Internet. Exams are given by proctors at regional locations.

The BCOE online masters program is unique in that it combines engineering and professional development classes. Another key component is a significant design experience, incorporating additional readings and knowledge of the courses taken. This design experience is addressed in the online course 296A.

9 courses (36 units), to include:

  • 4 college-wide core courses (4 credits each) in engineering management
  • 4 specialization courses (4 credits each) in an engineering concentration area
  • 1 design project (includes a literature review and a report)

Specialization courses are offered by the participating departments, whereas the common core courses are offered at the college level to all students. In order to ensure a University of California-quality program, specialization courses are taught by BCOE faculty as regular classes to on-campus M.S. and Ph.D. students, while also being delivered to online students. Online students are expected to satisfy the same requirements as on-campus students. This approach assures the outmost in educational quality, while providing the greatest convenience to online students.

The MSOL concentrations include Bioengineering, Data ScienceElectrical Engineering—Power Systems, Environmental Engineering Systems (Water)Materials at the Nanoscale, and Mechanical Engineering.
