Announcing Six New Interdisciplinary Professional Master's Programs

Armour College of Engineering has recently announced new Professional Master’s Programs that are available starting Fall 2017. These programs allow professionals to enhance their knowledge in a specific area and learn new skills to further their careers. Learn more about each degree below.

MASTER OF COMPUTATIONAL ENGINEERING

Students who thrive on solving complex equations and are energized by delving into computer simulations and mathematical algorithms would be a good fit for the Master of Computational Engineering program. This new and growing multidisciplinary field offers career possibilities ranging from calculating the trajectory of satellites to designing aircraft to simulating molecular mechanics. Students will learn computational methodologies, tools, analysis, processing, and modeling capabilities that are central to succeeding in this dynamic engineering field. Learn more.

MASTER OF ENGINEERING IN ADVANCED MANUFACTURING

To excel in today’s competitive business market, many companies in the automotive, aerospace, and chemical industries, for example, are advancing standard manufacturing practices to include innovative technology. In the Master of Engineering in Advanced Manufacturing program, students will explore the latest technologies, such as digital manufacturing and additive manufacturing, as well as learning more traditional hardware-based methodologies. Learn more.

MASTER OF ENGINEERING MANAGEMENT

The Master of Engineering Management program allows new engineering graduates to explore the possibilities offered by advancing technology through strategic business practices. Seasoned employees who are looking to add a second skillset to their engineering portfolio would also do well in this degree program. It features two specialty tracks—project management or product design and development. Both will provide students with an accelerated pathway to management positions within engineering-based industries. Learn more.

MASTER OF ENGINEERING IN URBAN SYSTEMS ENGINEERING

With greater emphasis today placed on urban living, the Master of Engineering in Urban Systems Engineering program prepares students to rise to the challenges of designing and maintaining tomorrow’s smart, sustainable cities. Core courses provide a solid knowledge base upon which to launch specializations in urban transportation systems, urban building systems, or the monitoring and control of urban systems. Students can also add on a variety of electives ranging from legal considerations to construction issues to real estate fundamentals. Learn more.

MASTER OF ENGINEERING IN ENERGY SYSTEMS

With its reputation as having the first microgrid energy-distribution system of its kind in the country, Illinois Tech is well equipped to prepare students to meet the challenges of generating, storing, and converting energy. Microgrid Design and Operation is one of the courses offered in the energy conservation and buildings specialty within the Master of Engineering in Energy Systems program. Two additional specialty tracks—energy generation and sustainability, and energy transmission and markets—are taught by faculty who have set the bar in energy systems and will empower students to become the next energy pioneers. Learn more.

MASTER OF PHARMACEUTICAL ENGINEERING

Designing new medicinal drugs, evaluating existing drugs, or improving upon pharmaceutical manufacturing processes are just some of the activities performed by a pharmaceutical engineer. In the Master of Pharmaceutical Engineering program, students first learn the basics of pharmaceutical engineering, drug delivery, bioprocess engineering, and entrepreneurship/intellectual property management before selecting from elective courses covering topics ranging from crystal growth to cardiovascular fluid mechanics to nanoscale imaging.
