Graduate Programs

Our engineering graduate options offer highly qualified students the opportunity to continue their engineering studies with the support of dedicated faculty, research opportunities and access to the latest technology in our labs and centers. For additional information on the programs below, please visit the Graduate Bulletin.*

Five-year Bachelor's / Master's Program: 

Each of the departments in the Opus College of Engineering at Marquette University offers programs that allow highly qualified students to complete a bachelor of science and master of science degree in five calendar years (six years for students enrolled in the Cooperative Education Program). By increasing course loads slightly junior year and/or by taking courses in the summer of junior and/or senior years, qualified students may be able to complete the bachelor's degree on schedule in four years and the master of science degree at the end of five calendar years.

Students intending to pursue one of these programs should begin planning at the end of sophomore year. Formal application to the program takes place during the second term of junior year. See individual departments for details.

Certificate Programs: 

Beginning in fall 2019, the Opus College of Engineering will offer a 12-credit certificate program in environmental engineering. The certificate is designed to allow engineers from a variety of disciplines the abiluty to expand their depth and breadth of knowledge to solve complex environmental engineering problems to protect public health and the environment. The certificate program is designed for practicing engineers and can be completed part time in two years, or as quickly as one year.

For more information on the certificate and to apply, visit the Graduate School

Additional certificate programs are expected to launch in 2020.
