The curriculum has a common core of courses, but is flexible enough to permit an interdisciplinary approach. You may choose either a thesis or non-thesis program.
You must satisfy all university admission requirements as well as the specific program requirements. Meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission into the program.
FIU and the College of Engineering and Computing offer a variety of fellowships, assistantships, and scholarships to qualified domestic and international students. The amounts of these awards vary depending on the type of award, but they may provide full tuition and a monthly stipend.

The Thesis Master’s program has 30 credits of course work, a minimum of six credits of Master’s Thesis, a one-credit Environmental Seminar and a final oral examination that includes an oral defense.
