### Program of study

Students will take a total of eight courses to satisfy the degree requirements. To ensure breadth, students are expected to take at least two courses in engineering, at least two courses in applied mathematics, and at least two courses in data science/high performance computing. This leaves two more courses to be taken to satisfy the program requirements, and, to ensure depth, these may be taken in engineering, applied mathematics, data science, or other relevant disciplines.

### Master of Science – Non-Thesis Option

Students are expected to complete the Master of Science – Non-Thesis program option in three semesters, taking three courses in the first and second semesters, and two courses in the third semester (i.e., the 3-3-2 model). One-year completion is also possible with students taking four courses in the first semester and four courses in the second (i.e., the 4-4 model). The maximum duration students may take to complete will be four semesters.

### Master of Science – Thesis Option

Students are expected to complete the Master of Science – Thesis program option in three or four semesters. In the three-semester format, the students are expected to take three courses in the first semester, three in the second semester, and two in the third semester. However, in the second and third semesters, the students may sign up for a “Reading Research and Design” type class (i.e., ENGN 2980 or equivalent in APMA) to satisfy the eight-course requirement. In the four-semester model, students are expected to take three courses in the first semester, two in the second semester, two in the third semester, and one in the fourth semester. In both cases, the “Reading Research and Design” course may be counted up to two times toward the degree.
