Energetic Concepts Engineering (online) (MEEC)
Graduate Degree Program
The Professional Master of Engineering program is a practice-oriented part-time graduate program designed to assist engineers and technical professionals in the development of their careers and to provide the expertise needed in the rapidly changing business, government, and industrial environments. Late afternoon, evening, and 100% online classes are taught by the College Park faculty and experienced adjunct faculty at the College Park campus and designated learning centers in Maryland.
Students in this program pay a special tuition rate, which does not differ between residents and non-residents of Maryland. This rate is not fully covered by graduate assistantships, fellowships or the tuition remission. Additional graduate student fees are charged. Tuition and fees are subject to change.
This program does not provide departmental assistantships or fellowships. Loans, work-study and need-based grants for citizens and permanent residents with demonstrated financial need may submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by appropriate FAFSA deadlines.

Courses in the Professional Master of Engineering program are currently offered on the College Park campus, at off-campus centers via video-teleconferencing, and 100% online. The Clark School of Engineering’s Distance Education Technology and Services (DETS) office administers a live interactive distance education system and webcast course capture for students to take courses as they are happening or at a time convenient for their schedule. Remote sites around the State of Maryland where our courses can be taken live via DETS are at the Universities at Shady Grove in Montgomery County, the University Center of Northeastern Maryland in Harford County, and the Southern Maryland Higher Education Center in St. Mary’s County. In addition to lecture dissemination, DETS provides state-of-the-art chat, bulletin board, video chat, group presentation, and discussion technologies that give our distance students the same, if not more access to faculty and their fellow students.
The Clark School’s Engineering Information Technology group also provides access to needed software and computer resources through dedicated virtual computer terminals that allow distance students full access to licensed software, libraries, databases, and specialized programs.
