The School of Engineering & Applied Science (SEAS) was established in 1934 and offers both a 36-credit Master of Engineering in Transmission & Distribution (T&D) Engineering degree and a 15-credit T&D Certificate for engineers in the electric utility industry.
The mission of the School of Engineering & Applied Science is to produce broadly educated and capable engineers and computer scientists ready to contribute innovative solutions for a better world. The T&D program exemplifies this mission statement by offering fully 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.
The multi-disciplined T&D program has been designed in collaboration with utility 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 industry engineers to ensure students learn the most relevant designs, standards and reliability practices. The program blends academic rigor with engineering practicum in a curriculum that includes civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering, along with engineering leadership topics.
