All M.S. programs at Parks College will satisfy the general requirements and review procedures. The minimum requirements for all degrees are 30 credits of courses, including 0-6 credits for Thesis or Project. Within those minimum requirements, individual faculty mentors may impose additional requirements or specific course requirements. The traditional model for a research M.S. includes 6 credits of Thesis research. In Engineering and Aviation, students may prefer a lesser focus on research, and that approach is consistent with the movement toward making the Master of Science degree a minimum expectation for entry into most industries.

Please review the following sections for more details on how to apply to the Master of Engineering program.

The Personal Potential Index (PPI) will be required to complete your application for admission. Visit SLU's page about the PPI evaluations and requirements or go to The ETS page to learn more about the PPI.

Degree Plan

Each new graduate student writes a Program of Study that must be approved by the faculty advisor and the Graduate Programs Director. That document will be prepared and reviewed in the context of the student's background and the student's career goals. In that flexible approach, each student will determine, with faculty advice and approval, a unique set of courses and a specific plan for the thesis or project. | Degree Plan
