To earn the Master of Engineering, students must have completed the following:
- Total 30 semester hours completed of which 24 hours are approved, graduate level courses, plus 6 hours of thesis. (See Curriculum Information below for further information)
- A minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0, with no more than two grades of C in the required curriculum. A course in which a grade of D was earned will not count toward meeting graduation requirements.
- Thesis oral defense and hard copy submission of master's thesis signed by committee members are required.
- All requirements completed at the graduate level in no more than five years at LeTourneau University.
- Payment of all tuition and fees.
- Approval of the faculty and the Board of Trustees.
Course work will typically be graduate level Engineering courses taken at LETU, but may also include some of the following options:
- A maximum of 2 approved* upper-division undergraduate courses (up to 8 credit hours) in Science, Computer Science, Math and/or Engineering. These hours cannot count toward an undergraduate degree.
- A maximum of 2 approved* graduate courses (up to 8 credit hours) completed at LETU as an undergraduate for dual credit. Dual credit is defined as a course that counts toward meeting the degree requirements of both the undergraduate and graduate degrees.
- A maximum of 6 approved* hours of transferred graduate level courses in Science, Computer Science, Math and/or Engineering from other ABET accredited institutions.
- A maximum of 8 approved* hours of graduate level courses in Science.
- A maximum of 3 approved* hours of graduate Business course work.
* A student's complete plan of study must be approved by his/her graduate committee and by the Master of Science in Engineering Thesis Advisor.
