About Our Program

The MS in Engineering (MSE) at Oregon Tech is designed to prepare engineering professionals with advanced knowledge and skills in high-demand multidisciplinary fields who are ready to assume a broad range of technical and leadership roles.

The MSE is a multidisciplinary program designed as a highly customizable and modular MS engineering degree, which enables students to choose coursework from multiple disciplines to design specialties typically not available in the classical engineering MS degrees.

The flexibility in the MS in Engineering degree ensures a relevant, up-to-date educational experience, and the ability to meet urgent industry needs in multidisciplinary technical fields. The program is designed to provide maximum flexibility while maintaining academic rigor.


Oregon Tech currently offers a multidisciplinary MS in Engineering degree (MSE) where students take courses in Systems Engineering, Research Methods & Innovation (covering peer-reviewer research, IP fundamentals, and technology commercialization), as well as engineering specialization courses from the various engineering disciplines.

Additionally, students can choose to focus on a particular technical field. These include the following MSE specialty degrees:

  • MSE in Systems Engineering 
  • MSE in Optical Engineering 
  • MSE in Embedded Systems Engineering & Interconnected Devices 

For more information, consult the MSE Program Presentation. The MSE Systems Engineering can be completed fully online. The MSE in Optical Engineering and the MSE in Embedded Systems Engineering & Interconnected Devices are available at the Wilsonville Campus.
