2014-2015 Undergraduate Academic Catalog 
2014-2015 Undergraduate Academic Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

President’s Welcome

Welcome to the 2014-15 Academic Catalog. I encourage you to use the catalog throughout your academic career as a valuable source for information on program tracks, course descriptions, faculty members, university policies and procedures and much more. The search feature in the upper left-hand corner of each page is especially helpful.

At MSOE, we continually challenge our students to perform and we challenge ourselves to improve. Graduation is the best sign of student success. Some examples of recent major improvements include:

  • The completion of Viets Field, an athletic field constructed on top of an in-ground, three-level 780-car parking facility and the ongoing renovations of the MSOE Tower Apartments, a new student housing option for upperclassmen and international students that features apartment-style rooms
  • New master’s degree programs including the MBA, MBA in education leadership, MBA in STEM leadership and master of science in nursing. In addition, some master’s degree programs are now offered 100 percent online
  • The new Environmental and Water Resources Laboratory, one of the newest in the Civil and Architectural Engineering and Construction Management (CAECM) Department, which features industry-standard equipment

As we strive to change and improve, we also work hard to retain certain aspects we’re well known for, including:

  • Staying ahead of new technology to ensure that students at MSOE receive the most sophisticated and relevant education possible
  • Highly credentialed faculty who actively integrate their practical knowledge into the student experience, from teaching and mentoring to undergraduate research
  • The MSOE student experience is more than academics. It includes on- and off-campus activities, counseling opportunities for emotional well being, and, of course, the Kern Center, offering a venue for personal fitness and organized athletics
  • Small class sizes and one-on-one interaction with faculty members, as well as high graduate placement rates and starting salaries

During your MSOE career, I challenge you to get the very most out of your university experience and fulfill your potential. Let a variety of interests lead you to stimulating activities both in and out of the classroom.
