All degree programs serve both full-time students and currently employed professionals. All Master’s degree (M.S.) programs offer thesis track and non-thesis track options.
- The MSMfgE program’s concentration in Engineering Management is structured to meet businesses’ needs for engineering managers and individual contributors who possess leadership skills along with applications experience in a specialized field.
- The concentration in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering prepares manufacturing engineers to accept greater project responsibility and to advance quickly in their careers.
- Students may select coursework in areas including robotics and automation; additive manufacturing; materials processing and nano-manufacturing; lean manufacturing; and product control, quality, safety and ergonomics.
- The MSCE degree program prepares professionals with advanced technical knowledge and skills in the vital area of infrastructure.
- The program comprises technical coursework in five main areas: Construction Engineering; Environmental/Water Resources Engineering; Transportation, Pavement and Geotechnical Engineering; Structural Engineering; and Surveying/Geomatics.
- The MSCS degree program prepares you for a career in software engineering, software & cybersecurity, machine learning, or data and knowledge systems.
- The program begins with a strong foundation in databases, AI and web systems; followed by unique specializations in data mining, data warehousing and distributed database systems. You will progress to applying database and knowledge systems to areas such as software engineering, wireless and mobile systems.
- The MSEE program is designed to meet global need for electrical engineers who posses leadership skills as well as applications experience in consumer, commercial and industrial areas.
- Courses include analytical math and experimental research in areas such as autonomous systems, optical communications, wireless power, small antennas and energy harvesting.
- The MSIT degree program prepares professionals with the advanced knowledge and skills needed to configure, implement, secure and manage the systems, networks and data that support every sector of our economy.
- Delivered in a face-to-face setting, the MSIT curriculum includes courses in emerging topics such as cyber security, data science and digital forensics.
- The MSME degree program prepares engineers to accept greater project responsibility while advancing quickly in their chosen discipline.
- MSME students conduct in-depth research and select coursework concentrations in Energy Science, Mechatronics or general Mechanical Engineering.
Ph.D. in Applied Computing
Through a balanced combination of application and theory in coursework and research experiences, our doctoral students will have the flexibility to acquire breadth and depth of knowledge in applied computing* as the requisite foundation to conduct interdisciplinary research and solve advanced technical problems of societal import. Recipients of a Ph.D. in Applied Computing from Georgia Southern will be ready to lead successful careers in academia, industry, and government, and to become entrepreneurs or technical consultants.
