Engineering

Rensselaer offers an engineering curricula designed to accommodate the evolving needs of the practicing engineer. Each curriculum helps students establish and build on a solid theoretical base while allowing them to practice their skills. This blend of academic excellence and industrial experience creates a unique learning environment for engineering students at Rensselaer. Degree programs are offered in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer and Systems Engineering, and Engineering Science together with Graduate Certificate Programs in Control Systems and High-Temperature Materials

Engineering Degrees
Master of Engineering and Master of Science degrees are offered in selected engineering disciplines. The Master of Engineering degrees require completion of a three credit project as a culminating experience while Master of Science degree candidates must carry out research leading to a six credit thesis. Apart from that, the curricula for both degrees are identical. The Master of Engineering degree is designed to fulfill the needs of practicing engineers in industry while the Master of Science degree is for those focused on a research career.

The following engineering degrees are being awarded (click each to go to that section):

Candidates for the master's degree must complete an advisor approved plan of study consisting of:

  • At least 30 credit hours beyond the bachelor's degree with cumulative GPA of 3.0/4.0 or higher.
  • At least 18 of the total credit hours presented toward the degree must have the suffix numbers 6000-6990 or 7000-7990
  • At least 21 of the total credit hours presented towards the degree must be from courses taken within the discipline.

A student may transfer credits for 2 graduate-level (equivalent to 6000 or 7000 level in the Rensselaer at Hartford Catalog) courses (total of 6 credit hours) taken at an accredited graduate school with the grade(s) of “B” or better. The transfer/waiver process must be approved by the faculty advisor and the Assistant Dean for Academic Programs. Transfer courses must be relevant to the program of study being pursued by the student at Rensselaer.

Students must prepare their Plan of Study together with their advisor and have it reviewed and approved by the advisor and the program coordinator before completion of their fourth course. All the above requirements must be completed within three years of admission.

Culminating Experience (Engineering Project/Engineering Thesis)

The culminating experience is a requirement for the master's degree in Connecticut. It may be fulfilled by either of the following:

  • Completing a three-credit-hour master's project along with 27 credit hours of appropriate course work thus leading to the Master of Engineering degree.
  • Completing a six-credit-hour master's thesis along with 24 credit hours of appropriate course work thus leading to the Master of Science degree.

Engineering Science

The Master of Science in Engineering Science degree serves students whose educational needs do not correspond to the standard professional engineering curricula.  It allows students to tailor a plan of study to their particular requirements.  Each student's course of study is developed in close consultation with the advisor to allow meaningful and strongly directed interdisciplinary approach.

The degree awarded in this area is not, nor is it intended to be, accredited for practice.  Students entering the Engineering Science program are expected to hold a Bachelor of Science degree in one of the traditional engineering disciplines. Applicants not holding such degree must have evidence of coursework in at least:

  • Mathematics, through Ordinary Differential Equations (three terms or 12 credits)
  • Physics (two terms)
  • Chemistry and/or Engineering Materials (one term)
  • Mechanics (one term)
  • Electronics/Circuits (one term)
  • Probability and Statistics (one term)

Students lacking one or more of these courses are expected to take corrective action before entering the Engineering Science program.

Engineering Graduate Certificate Programs

For working professionals not seeking a complete Master's degree, Rensselaer's Graduate Certificate Programs are tailored to enhance or update skills in a shorter period of time. They have a selective focus and require that a student successfully complete three or four graduate courses in a specific area of Engineering. With an advisor's approval, credits earned may be subsequently applied as electives toward a Master's degree.

Graduate Certificate Program in Control Systems
Control systems are widely used in engineering to monitor the values of process variables by measurement so as to make rational decisions about required corrective actions.  Analysis and design of control systems requires consideration of sensors, controllers, transmitters as well as auxiliary control and hardware elements.
Rensselaer at Hartford offers a Graduate Certificate in Control Systems designed to provide an understanding of control systems engineering, including the fundamental principles of control systems and their application to real-life engineering problems.

Admission Requirements

  1. Students who have received a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or Computer Science
  2. Students with a B.S. degree in another engineering discipline, mathematics, or physics, subject to the condition that the following essential prerequisites have been completed:
    ECSE-2010 Electrical Circuits
    ECSE-2410 Signals and Systems (or ECSE-4960 Fundamentals of Signals and Systems)

The Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in Control Systems is awarded upon successful completion of the following courses:

Core Courses (6 credits):
ECSE-4440 Control Systems Engineering
ECSE-6400 Systems Analysis Techniques

Elective Courses (Any two, 6 credits)
ECSE-4490 Fundamentals of Robotics
ECSE-6420 Nonlinear Control Systems
ECSE-6440 Optimal Control Theory
ECSE-6460 Multivariable Control Systems
ECSE-6960 Topics in Electrical Engineering: Mechatronics
ECSE-6960 Special Topics in Electrical Engineering: Embedded Digital Control Systems
ECSE-6410 Robotics and Automations Systems

Academic credit earned from these courses can then be applied towards a Master's degree.

Please contact Professor Farooque Mesiya at if you have any questions about the Control Systems Certificate Program.

Graduate Certificate Program in High Temperature Materials
Materials used in the "hot zones" of propulsion and power generation systems must satisfy stringent demands for integrity and performance.  Materials exposed to these extreme environments exhibit continuously evolving microstructures and this must be accounted for during the component design stage of production.

Rensselaer offers a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in High Temperature Materials designed to provide an understanding of the properties of high temperature alloys as well as skills in improving those properties by manipulating the material microstructure through processing.

The Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in High Temperature Materials is awarded upon successful completion of the following courses.

MTLE-4260 High Temperature Alloys (Superalloys)
MTLE-7061 Casting and Joining Processes for Superalloys
MTLE-6960 High Temperature Coatings Engineering

Academic credit earned from these courses can then be applied towards a Master's degree. Please contact Professor Ernesto Gutierrez-Miravete at if you have any questions about the Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in High Temperature Materials.
