“Our College of Engineering departments made the decision to ensure that our degrees were cost-effective from the student point-of-view,” said engineering Dean Robin Coger. “Now that a student can earn a master’s degree in any of our departments with only a one-year commitment, it quickens the time in which students are able to graduate and apply the knowledge they gain for the benefit of their careers.”
