MASTER OF ENGINEERING in MATERIEL ENGINEERING
The Departments of Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering collectively offer a graduate program leading to the Master of Engineering (M.Eng) degree in Materiel Engineering. Materiel is defined as the equipment, apparatus, and supplies used by an organization. Materiel engineering involves the design, production, test and evaluation, distribution, operation and support, and ultimate disposition of man-made equipment, apparatus, and supplies, and, as such, is highly interdisciplinary.
The general objective of this program from AAMU is to provide a curriculum of the highest quality for post-baccalaureate learning opportunities in this highly important area. Specific objectives are as follows:
- Provide students with a solid foundation in Materiel Engineering, as well advanced studies in areas of Civil, Electrical, or Mechanical Engineering
- Provide a continuum of study leading to a graduate degree for qualified students at AAMU completing a baccalaureate in engineering
- Provide a program of study that also accommodates the needs and limitations of mature adults engaged in full-time employment
- Accommodate the admission of persons holding bachelor’s degrees in non-engineering areas, using selected background courses
- Respond to the anticipated requirement of making the master’s degree, or the equivalent, as an entry-level qualification for attaining professional licensure.
This program is intended for individuals holding a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution in any area of engineering or a closely related discipline. To formally pursue the Master of Engineering degree, the student must apply to the Graduate School of AAMU for Regular Admission, meeting the requirements for either Unconditional or Conditional Status. To take individual courses without seeking the graduate degree, persons may be admitted in a Non-Degree Graduate Status.
Regular Graduate Admission Applicants for admission to the Graduate School of AAMU must provide transcripts from each post-secondary school attended, as well as a transcript of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). They must also provide two letters of recommendation and submit details of any professional work experience. Students from non-English speaking countries are required to have a minimum score of 500 on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).
Unconditional Admission. To be admitted with Regular Status to the Master of Engineering program, an applicant must have
• Earned a bachelor’s degree in an engineering program that had ABET accreditation at the time of graduation,
• Earned an overall Grade Point Average (GPA) of at least 3.00 on a scale of 4.00, or have passed the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) Fundamentals of Engineering Examination, and
• Minimum GRE scores of 600 on the quantitative portion and 1000 on the combined verbal and quantitative portions.
Conditional Admission. Applicants who do not meet one, but no more, of the three above-listed requirements for unconditional admission may be admitted on a conditional basis under the following conditions:
• GPA or GRE Deficiency. Persons with a bachelor’s degree in engineering may receive Conditional Admission provided their GPA is at least 2.5 on all undergraduate engineering courses attempted. This condition also holds for individuals with a GRE deficiency, including those who have not taken the GRE.
• Degrees in Other Fields. Individuals with a bachelor’s degree in physics, mathematics, computer science, chemistry, or other fields closely related to engineering may receive Conditional Admission provided they have completed the following:
• Mathematics through Differential Equations
• Series in General Chemistry
• Series in Calculus-based Physics
• Introductory Computer Programming
• Other courses prescribed by the advising engineering department, including specific topics stated as prerequisites for intended graduate courses.
Persons not meeting these minimum preparatory studies are advised to register as undergraduate students while completing this background.
Under Conditional Admission, a student may complete up to 15 semester hours credits recommended by the department advisor. A student in Conditional Admission is required to earn a minimum of ’B’ grade in these courses to progress to Regular Admission; otherwise, the student will be dismissed from the School of Graduate Studies.
Non-Degree Graduate Status Professionals in the community may desire to take certain courses for graduate credit without the full formalities of applying for the graduate program. The AAMU School of Graduate Studies provides for the admission of such persons in a non-degree graduate status. To qualify for this admission, individuals must be a graduate of a regionally accredited institutionin the United States with a 2.5 or higher undergraduate GPA. They must also have the prerequisites for any course pursued at AAMU.
To pursue graduate engineering courses using the non-degree graduate status, an application must first be submitted to the School of Engineering and Technology. This is to ensure that the applicant has the required background for the desired course(s). If approved, the application will then be passed on to the School of Graduate Studies for processing.
Up to nine semester hours of graduate credit may be earned while in the non-degree status. Later, if the individual applies for and receives regular admission to the program, applicable credits earned with a grade of ‘B’ or better may be applied to meeting the program requirements.
Degree Completion Requirements
Academic Credit: A minimum of 30 semester hours credit in graduate-level courses will be required. These are distributed as follows:
Core Courses 12 s.h.
Discipline Specialization Courses 9 s.h.
Approved Electives 6 s.h.

3. Approved Elective Courses: To allow additional diversity, approved elective courses may be included to complete the course requirements, the number of such electives depending on the number of courses taken in the specialization. These electives may be drawn from other specialty areas or may include approved graduate courses from other AAMU departments or elsewhere as approved by the advisor. In certain cases and as appropriate, advanced courses needed as prerequisites to other program courses may be included.
4. Master’s Project: The Master’s Project is a significant completion requirement. For this, the student registers in GEN-690 Materiel Engineering Project.
The activity is initiated by a seminar covering the requirements, with an emphasis on reports typical in the engineering profession. The project subject, which must be approved by the student’s department advisor, must relate one or more topics from core courses with a detailed topic from a specialty course, providing a state-of-the-art treatment based on available literature. The student then acts independently in developing the report.
Information sources would include journals, trade publications, and government and industry reports. Other than the assessment of this existing information, no original research is required. Source information must be referenced in a professional style. The final report will be reviewed by the department advisor, with a Pass/Fail/Incomplete grade.
Transfer Credit. With the approval of the department advisor, graduate credit may be transferred into this program from study at AAMU and/or other colleges and universities. This would be limited to 12 semester hours if the credit has not been used in completing a graduate program, and 6 semester hours if previously used in completing a graduate degree. All such courses must have been completed with a grade of “B” or better and must have been taken while the student was in a graduate status.
