University of Virginia

The extended graduate education program of the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at the University of Virginia is a five-year program, offering advanced Civil and Environmental Engineering courses leading toward the Master of Engineering (ME) degree with an emphasis in infrastructure systems.

Master of Engineering (ME) Electrical Engineering

University of Virginia

This Master of Engineering degree program allows the student to attain additional knowledge in advanced areas of Electrical Engineering. Students may develop their M.E. program with courses selected from the fields of automatic control, digital systems, pattern recognition and image processing, computer aided design, semiconductor devices, networks, microwave systems, communications and information theory, optics and opto-electronics, and signal processing, as well as from mathematics and other related disciplines. The M.E. program is designed for engineers currently in practice who feel the need to become knowledgeable in the latest areas of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Master of Engineering Chemical Engineering

University of Virginia

This graduate program in chemical engineering prepares men and women for advanced work in the chemical, plastics, energy, and pharmaceutical industries, as well as for many other industrial and government positions.

Master of Engineering (ME) Systems Engineering

University of Virginia

The Department of Systems Engineering at the University of Virginia administers the Virginia Engineering Online (also known as Commonwealth Graduate Engineering) program leading to the degree of Master of Engineering with a major in Systems Engineering. Systems Engineering is concerned primarily with improving the processes of problem-solving and decision-making within the functions of forecasting, planning, design, development, testing, evaluation, control, operation, and management. Emphasis in the curriculum is placed on preparing individuals for careers concerned with the solution of significant large-scale interdisciplinary problems.

Master of Engineering (ME) Material Science and Engineering

University of Virginia

The purpose of this distance learning program is to provide graduate level instruction in Materials Science and Engineering to industrial personnel throughout the State of Virginia and beyond. Courses may be taken either for credit leading to a Master of Materials Science and Engineering (MMSE) degree or for general information. The courses are taught live in Charlottesville in the afternoon or early evening to graduate students at UVA and transmitted simultaneously to enrolled students. Two-way video and audio communication capabilities allow online learners to have direct interaction with the classroom. The lectures are video streamed so that any student who must miss a regularly scheduled class due to job commitments can view the lecture later.

Virginia Commonwealth University

Master of Engineering (ME) Engineering Management

Virginia Commonwealth University

The Commonwealth Graduate Engineering Program (CGEP) offers engineers and other professionals the opportunity to earn a master's degree part time through onsite and televised graduate classes. CGEP is a distance learning graduate program of six universities in Virginia. When you participate in CGEP at the VCU School of Engineering, you enter a program with robust academics and real-world relevance. You’ll work with internationally-recognized faculty members who are committed to challenging and inspiring students [or “the returning student”]. VCU Engineering was founded on the idea of public-private partnerships, and you see this every day in the collaborative projects that bring researchers from government, industry and academia to VCU’s state-of-the-art facilities. As a CGEP student at VCU, the professional insights you bring also play a vital role in our culture of entrepreneurship.
