Wayne State announces additional online engineering master’s programs launching Fall 2023
Starting in the Fall 2023 semester, the Wayne State University College of Engineering will add five new online master’s programs to its array of academic offerings. These programs aim to more broadly deliver WSU’s renowned education in developing advanced technologies with added convenience and flexibility.
Wayne State announced in January the formation of an online M.S. in biomedical engineering with concentration in injury biomechanics. The four additional online programs coming this fall are:
- M.S. in computer science: artificial intelligence
- M.S. in electrical engineering: semiconductor engineering
- M.S. in mechanical engineering: energy storage and vehicle science
- M.S. in robotics: industrial automation
All five programs address the high demand for talent in lucrative and rapidly growing industry sectors, with the added benefit of the global reach and diverse perspective that online programming can offer.
“Never has the world-class education offered by Wayne State been more accessible,” said Ali Abolmaali, dean of the College of Engineering. “Students from across the globe can now discover what we here in Detroit already know — Wayne State is one of the most comprehensive academic and research institutions in the U.S.”
Several of the online programs are adaptations of traditional degrees Wayne State has offered for years. Others, such as the semiconductor engineering program — the first of its kind in Michigan and the second such online program in the U.S. — are entirely new to the College of Engineering.
Incoming students are welcome to apply now for Fall 2023 or Winter 2024. There are no deadlines, and applications will be accepted until the start of each semester.
