MAGE welcomes international students to apply for online or on-campus Professional Master of Engineering programs (30 credits). All of our M.Eng. degree programs are open to qualified applicants holding a regionally accredited baccalaureate degree in engineering or a related field.

Please note: Due to the brief nature of the Graduate Certificate in Engineering (GCEN) program (12 credits), the program is not available to international students, as they would not qualify for the student visa. International students are welcome to apply for GCEN programs that are offered online.

Because the application process for international applicants differs from that of domestic applicants, be sure to carefully review the information below before submitting an application.
