Master of Science in Measurement and Control Engineering
The engineering departments at ISU offer a Master of Science (MS) program in Measurement and Control Engineering (MCE). This program is designed to provide advanced study in measurements, modeling, simulation, adaptive, intelligent, nonlinear, optimal, robust control, and robotics. The MCE program admits students with a background in Instrumentation and Control Engineering, Mechanical-, Electrical-, Civil-, Nuclear-, and Aerospace-Engineering, as well as students with degrees in Computer Science and Physics. The program prepares the students for advanced placement in the measurement and control engineering field in industry, research, or development areas. Additionally, this program provides a suitable base for entrance into a Ph.D. program in a field related to Mechanical or Electrical Engineering. The program is offered both at the Pocatello and the Idaho Falls campuses, primarily through the use of telecommunications/distance learning, which includes partial in-class instruction. There are 30 credit hours required for an MS in MCE. The required thesis project should consist of study and research that complements the course work selected. Each student must also complete two semesters of seminar, an important component in developing research and communication skills.
