"The unique MSE 4+1 program allows you to come out of school with an MS in a thriving field in only one year, setting you apart from most entry level applicants. It is becoming increasingly needed for education higher than the BS level to find a good job, which is the main reason I am pursuing this degree. The brand new, state of the art Smart Energy building is where all our classes are, which is an added plus to this program."
