The Master of Science in Engineering degree is a joint venture between the Electrical and Computer Engineering and Mechanical Engineering departments at UWF.  Students in this program will be able to choose between one of three high demand areas of concentration and mix in a wide variety of elective courses to develop a program that best suits their needs.  We also provide both a thesis and a non-thesis (project) option.

Whether you are a professional wanting an MS degree for advancement or are preparing to move into a PhD program (our Robotics concentration would be a great way to prepare for the PhD in Intelligent Systems and Robotics at UWF), UWF has a lot to offer.   Our highly trained faculty, state of the art labs and research, and high tech classrooms are just what you need.

Admission Requirements

In addition to the University graduate admission requirements described in the Admissions section of the catalog, the department bases decisions for regular admission on a holistic review of credentials in which the following criteria are used to assess the potential success of each applicant:

  • Submission of one of the following graduate admission tests:
    • Graduate Record Examination (GRE)
    • Miller Analogies Test (MAT)
  • Bachelor’s degree from an ABET accredited program in electrical, computer or mechanical engineering (or closely related field)
  • Undergraduate institutional GPA

The graduate admission test requirement will be waived for applicants with a 3.0 institutional undergraduate GPA or better. Students who are admitted to the program but do not have a sufficient background for their chosen concentration area may be required to complete additional coursework. All other students can only be admitted by approval of the Graduate Committee. These students will likely have to complete additional coursework as recommended by the Graduate Committee.
