Graduate Programs

The Allen E. Paulson College of Engineering and Information Technology offers the following graduate degree programs.

 M.S. in Applied Engineering ››

The Department of Manufacturing Engineering currently offers a Master of Science in Applied Engineering (MSAE) with concentrations in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering and in Engineering Management. In addition, Graduate Certificates in Engineering & Manufacturing Management and Occupational Safety & Environmental Compliance are available.

See the M.S. in Applied Engineering brochure.

M.S. in Computer Science ››

The Master of Science in Computer Science degree program is the only such degree concentration offered in Georgia and one of only a handful across the country. This online and hybrid (including face-to-face courses) program focuses on the currently hot areas of data mining and data warehousing.

See the M.S. in Computer Science brochure.

Expansion of Programs

In May, 2017, the University System of Georgia’s Board of Regents approved four new M.S. programs in the College of Engineering and Computing.  The U.S. Department of Education approved these programs on September 3, 2018.

  • M.S. in Civil Engineering
  • M.S. in Electrical Engineering
  • M.S. in Information Technology
  • M.S. in Mechanical Engineering

This expansion of programs will provide master’s degrees that are well recognized by industry professionals and graduate school applicants.  In addition, the graduate programs will allow Georgia Southern’s engineering and computing faculty to expand their cutting-edge research programs.  The undergraduate programs are popular with college applicants and the degrees are in high demand by employers across the region.


M.S. in Civil Engineering ››

The Master of Science in Civil Engineering (MSCE) degree program integrates state-of-the-art technology and interdisciplinary & conceptual science with hands-on, operational skills. Graduates gain valuable knowledge and skills that allow them to make an immediate impact on their career and their employers. The MSCE students can choose a specialization in Civil Engineering and/or Construction with Thesis or Non-Thesis tracks. Specializations such as Construction Engineering, Environmental/Water Resources Engineering, Transportation-Pavement/Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering and Surveying-Geomatics are available.

 M.S. in Electrical Engineering ››

The demand for applications-oriented engineering managers and professionals has grown rapidly.  the M.S.E.E. program is designed to meet this global need for engineers who possess leadership skills as well as applications experience in consumer, commercial and industrial fields.  Courses include analytical math and experimental research in areas such as autonomous systems, optical communications, wireless power, small antennas, intelligent sensors, smart grids and energy harvesting.

See to M.S. in Electrical Engineering brochure.

M.S. in Information Technology ››

The M.S. in Information Technology 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.  The program serves both full-time students preparing for a career as an IT professional, and currently-employed IT professionals seeking an advanced education to augment their existing skills and background.

See the M.S. in Information Technology brochure.

M.S. in Mechanical Engineering ››

The MS in Mechanical Engineering, provided focused and specialized educational opportunities beyond the BS degree.  Students select coursework concentrations in Energy Science, Mechatronics, and General Mechanical Engineering, while conducting in-depth research.  The MSME degree prepares young engineers to accept greater project responsibility, while advancing more quickly in their chosen careers.
