Overview

A Highly Ranked Engineering University

Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) is a highly regarded regional university that offers programs in engineering, business, mathematics, and nursing. Both "The Princeton Review" and "U.S. News and World Report" rank MSOE among the best in the Midwest. "Forbes" places MSOE among the top 9% of universities in the nation for engineering programs.

Milwaukee School of Engineering also consistently ranks as a best value on the "U.S. News and World Report" survey of Midwestern universities without Ph.D. programs.

This highly-ranked university offers a Master of Science in Structural Engineering degree program.

The Master's Program in Structural Engineering

Students can reach the next level of expertise with a master's degree in structural engineering. They'll enjoy convenient scheduling and one-on-one interaction with expert faculty members who bring their real-world experience to the classroom.

MSOE's Master of Science in Structural Engineering (MSST) degree program emphasizes building structural design and analysis. It meets the needs of architectural, civil or structural engineers who desire increased knowledge to design structural systems for modern buildings.

With the MSST degree program, students will enhance their analytical and design capabilities and increase their professional flexibility. For recent graduates with civil or architectural engineering degrees, earning an MSST will accelerate the Professional Engineer credential.

Program Details

The MSST requires that students have completed an undergraduate curriculum that included indeterminate structural analysis, structural steel and reinforced concrete design, and soil mechanics.

MSST courses focus on structural design topics like advanced design of structural steel members and systems, light gage metal members and structure, wood structures, masonry structures, foundations, and selection of structural systems. Courses on advanced structural analysis are included and provide a broad theoretical background for structural design.

MSOE follows an academic quarter system. The 45 quarter credits required in this program equate to approximately 30 semester credits of contact and class time.

The Milwaukee School of Engineering Advantage

Students enrolled in the Master of Science in Structural Engineering degree program at MSOE receive a practical, applied, professional graduate education that allows them to immediately apply new knowledge to work challenges both during the program and at program completion. Graduate program alumni show high career achievement, and move into many leadership positions that range from Chief Executive Officer to Project Manager. A longitudinal study of mid-career MSOE graduates shows that they continue to outperform their cohorts in both salary and job satisfaction.

Small class sizes and professor-led classes are another component of the MSOE advantage. Students enjoy great access to professors, allowing for greater feedback and improving students' mastery of core concepts. In addition, the online blended format and tech-savvy faculty members make it easy to communicate with professors via email, Skype, text, and other platforms.

A Business Background in the Classroom

MSOE faculty members have relevant, extensive experience outside the classroom and laboratory, and have often worked in industry for many years before coming to MSOE to teach. Professors share their experience and expertise in the classroom, and also help students apply new learning to address business problems during class-related field projects. The close relationships between MSOE faculty members and regional industry help maintain a current, relevant curriculum, while providing a "living laboratory" in which students apply new skills and knowledge.

In addition to significant industry experience, the majority of MSOE graduate faculty members hold doctoral degrees in specialized fields of study that enhance their ability to share information in the classroom.

A Modern Campus

Milwaukee School of Engineering's 20 acre campus is located in the east shore neighborhood of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, just minutes from Lake Michigan. Campus features include an athletic field and easy-access parking.

"The Princeton Review" has named MSOE as one of the nation's most environmentally friendly colleges. The solar panels atop the Campus Center develop renewable clean energy.

MSOE's graduates enjoy the highest average starting and mid-career salaries of any Wisconsin university according to Payscale Inc. Affordable Colleges Online ranks MSOE in the top 1% of U.S. colleges as measured by return on investment (ROI). MSOE degree-holders out-earn non-degree holders by at least one million dollars.
