Master of Science

The Department of Engineering Technology at the University of North Texas offers a program leading to a Master of Science in Engineering Technology (MSET). Candidates can choose from the following options:

      1. A 30-semester-hour thesis option consisting of 24 semester hours of graduate course work including a 3-hour Seminar plus a 6-hours Thesis. This degree plan can be completed in 3 semesters.
      2. A 33-semester-hour non-thesis option consisting of 27 semester hours of graduate course and one of two choices:
        • Project-Option: 3-hour Seminar plus a 3-hour Project
        • Course-Only Option: one additional graduate course and a 3-hour integrative course that depends on your concentration area.

The MSET degree is offered in the following concentrations:
