Financial Aid

ASU has many financial aid options. Almost everyone, regardless of income, can qualify for some form of financial aid. In fact, more than 70 percent of all ASU students receive some form of financial assistance every year.

* This is a priority deadline. Applications received after this date may still be considered.

Engineering, MS

The MS in engineering program consists of a core set of courses designed to develop applied analytical expertise across disciplinary boundaries, with direct applications of advanced design principles to system design, management and control. The expertise developed in the core curriculum is reinforced through focus areas that provide flexibility for the student, including alternative energy, mechanical, electrical and manufacturing engineering. The degree will offer options for students culminating in a master's thesis, or an applied project. Each of these options is designed to engage students with real-world applications of engineering and to develop problem-solving skills.

Career Opportunities 

Engineers collaborate on interdisciplinary teams to design, manufacture and deliver innovative technological products and services. The graduate program enables students to develop not only sophisticated engineering technical skills but also the important professional skills of communication, teamwork and collaboration, and the adaptability that many employers seek. Graduates are prepared to work in large corporations, government agencies, small businesses, as well as to go on to graduate school to pursue advanced degrees. Due to the emphasis on design and project-based learning, the program supports an entrepreneurial spirit, and some students start companies of their own.
