Industry 4.0 – Are you Ready?
Do you love to work with energy and motion to solve complex issues that face our world today? Do you enjoy the idea of taking a product from an idea right to the marketplace? Then an MS in Mechanical Engineering would be a good fit for you. In fact, the work of mechanical engineers affects a wide array of industries that stretch from health care all the way to space exploration.
Those who understand emerging technologies within Industry 4.0 are currently in high demand. Even if you are already in the workforce, having additional training in these areas can increase your salary and more easily advance your career.
Mechanical Engineering Masters degree graduates find work in fields such as:
Yes. The vast majority of our students work throughout their time in their academic program. It is important to assess course load and financial aid to understand how to balance school and working.
If possible, students may cut down on their work hours during a clinical portion of a program.
Most of our programs do not require onsite visits, but there are a couple of exceptions.
If you are interested in pursuing the Master of Science in Nursing-Nurse Midwifery, you will have two skills intensives that take place on campus. The Post-Master’s Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner program has one onsite visit that occurs during the first semester of psych-specific classes.
Yes. Many of our students qualify for some type of financial aid.
