The Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science

enginet

EngiNet is designed for students wanting the same challenging courses and the same prestigious degree from Binghamton University, but seeking an alternative to the typical on-campus experience.

Lectures are recorded live on-campus and digitally encoded so our distance learning students can view material and stream lectures at times most convenient for them.

Students must still meet course deadlines, but the flexibility to continue with normal work and personal schedules enables many to take courses when they otherwise would not be able to.

Courses are offered by the Watson School department and vary by semester.

If you have a Bachelor of Science degree in any field, you can earn a Master of Engineering degree in electrical and computer engineering or systems science and industrial engineering completely online!

Degrees

All Watson School graduate students, including EngiNet students, are encouraged to discuss degree plans, prerequisite status and schedule planning issues with the departmental graduate advisors.

The University Bulletin offers more details about the Watson School and degree requirements or contact individual Watson School departments directly:

Depending on the degree, a student may not be able to fulfill all degree plan requirements completely through EngiNet. Also, not Watson School graduate courses are offered in distance delivery format.

When this occurs, a student may either come to campus to take the course or transfer in the required course(s) from another institution which fulfills the requirement. Note: only two courses may be transferred into the program.

There is a specialized electronics packaging certificate program available to Watson graduate students.

Contact Watson’s Advising Office for more information.
