About the Program

Enhance your technical skills, business acumen and effectiveness in the workplace—from wherever you’re located—with Case Western Reserve University’s online Master of Engineering. In this practice-oriented program, you’ll gain the critical competencies and leadership skills you need to tackle today’s technical and business problems. At Case School of Engineering, we’re selective about our students, which means you’ll learn alongside others who are just as motivated as you. Plus, our renowned faculty will support you along the way, both in and outside the (virtual) classroom. 

What to Expect

Choose from four concentrations to specialize your studies: mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering, systems and control engineering, or engineering innovation, management and leadership. All paths are 30 credit hours, with classes offered 100% online. 

But just because you’re not on campus doesn’t mean your learning will be any less rigorous. You’ll learn from the same faculty as our on-campus students, engaging with them through multimedia lectures. You’ll have access to many of the same resources as your on-campus counterparts. And you’ll have the chance to get to know your classmates during virtual study sessions and interactive class time—including your capstone, during which you’ll work on an interdisciplinary team to build a project from the ground up.

Whether you’re a busy professional or simply someone looking for a flexible degree option, you can earn a master’s from one of the top engineering schools at home, or wherever you happen to be. 

We provide an immersive and supportive educational environment, and we are looking forward to working with you to advance your career and meet your future goals.
