Best Online Master’s in Engineering: Students Before Profits Award 2015

Best-Online-Masters-in-Engineering-Students-Before-Profits-Award-2015Our Students Before Profits Award was created to promote nonprofit colleges and universities offering online degree programs that put students before profits and education before the bottom line.

For our 2015 Online Master’s in Engineering award winners, we selected online programs from accredited, nonprofit colleges and universities with objectively lower than average tuition cost and have ranked the programs according to their affordability.

Professionals with advanced knowledge in a variety of technical fields are in increasing and unprecedented demand as the technological landscape continues to rapidly change.  Choosing to deepen your expertise in a leading-edge engineering specialty will not only increase your value to employers, but will also strategically place you to achieve your highest professional goals.

The Master in Engineering is designed to provide students with advanced knowledge and technical skills sets in a wide variety of technical disciplines including, but not limited to Aerospace, Mechanics, Electrical Systems, Environmental and Civil Design, Computer Science, Engineering Management, and Information Systems.  Choosing to pursue advanced training in one of these or other engineering specializations will provide significant return and increase your starting salary by as much as $10,000.

Though this ranking is primarily concerned with the affordability of Engineering programs,  many programs here have consistently been ranked among the top of their kind by other national publications and we believe they deserve to be considered among the best online Master’s in Engineering available.

Note that tuition rates listed below are based on cost per credit and individual programs may have additional fees.
