Additional Details

The Wind Energy Center's M.S. in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering with a Concentration in Wind Energy option requires 30 credits of graduate course work, and can be completed in 2-3 semesters. You would receive an identical degree to a thesis-based M.S. degree, but instead of completing a Master's thesis as part of the degree requirements, the course work would satisfy all of the degree requirements.
