Distance Education

In these economic times, the job market has become increasingly competitive, but the pace of change has not slowed. Staying on top of the latest trends isn't enough; you need to lead the next wave of innovation. Fortunately for you as a practicing engineer, you can further your education and your career through distance learning opportunities at Case Western Reserve University, home of one of nation's top engineering schools.

The Case School of Engineering is pleased to offer its course-only Master of Science in Engineering completely online: the same leading-edge program enjoyed for decades by our outstanding graduate students on campus.

You can earn your Master of Science in Engineering without visiting campus or conducting lab-based research. Instead, classes come to you via the Internet.  You can attend lectures wherever and whenever it’s convenient for you: at work on your lunch hour, at home after your kids are asleep, or at the airport while waiting for a plane.  All you need is a computer with a high-speed internet connection to view lectures. 

Our world-renowned faculty and staff are just an email or phone call away to answer any of your questions regarding your classes or coursework.

With as few as nine courses and a comprehensive exam, you can earn a Master of Science in Engineering in fields such as electrical engineering, computer engineering, or systems and control engineering, to name a few.

If you have more flexibility, the Case School of Engineering also offers a  Master of Engineering: a practice-oriented degree that does require some on-campus evening classes in addition to distance education courses. Either way, your costs are minimal since tuition is usually reimbursed by employers. You just need a desire to learn and advance your career.

How to Apply

You are encouraged to complete the application for admission at the School of Graduate Studies website.  The Application for Admission ensures that your credentials will be evaluated by the department review committee prior to your taking any classes.  Once accepted into a program, you can be certain that the courses taken will count towards a degree.  Applications are now being accepted for the next semester. 

You can apply as a non-degree candidate. Coursework can later be applied to your M.S. degree with prior approval by the department.  You have until your second semester to formally apply as a degree seeking student.
