Introduction to Professional Education
Our Department is also actively engaged in providing professionals the ability to further their education. The Department has two distinct programs - the Weekend Masters Program, and tailor made Master Degree programs run in conjuction with companies.
The Weekend Masters Program
The College of Technology is delivering a weekend program for graduate education that provides individuals the opportunity to complete the Master of Science degree in Technology within five academic semesters.
The program has been developed such that students make a two-year commitment in registering with the program's specified course offerings, thus maintaining proper sequence of experiences. Admitted students move through the program as an intact class, therefore, providing an enriched environment for interaction and professional growth among participants.
The program requires students to come to the West Lafayette campus for three extended weekends each semester. These extended weekends begin on Friday afternoon and conclude on Sunday afternoon. Students take seven credit hours of course work for four academic sessions and five credit hours in one summer session. Students, on average, find they spend approximately 20-25 hours a week completing independent learning activities.
