School of Engineering & Applied Science

Dean: Steve Silliman

The School of Engineering & Applied Science (SEAS) was established in 1934 and offers both a Master of Engineering in Transmission & Distribution (T&D) Engineering degree and a 15-credit T&D Certificate for engineers in the power industry.

The School of Engineering & Applied Science produces broadly educated and capable engineers ready to contribute innovative solutions for a better world.  The T&D program exemplifies this mission statement by offering online, graduate level courses to utility engineering professionals who are interested in pursuing an advanced degree but are unable to participate in traditional (on-site) graduate programs.

Each course in the program has been designed in collaboration with power industry experts to provide students with necessary technical and managerial skills for advancement in their engineering careers. The courses are taught by experienced engineering faculty and power industry engineers to ensure students learn the most relevant design and maintenance standards.  The multi-disciplined program blends academic rigor with engineering practicum in a series of courses that include civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering, along with engineering leadership topics, to form an advanced degree or Certificate in Transmission and Distribution Engineering.
