A new military engineering course offered by Mississippi State University’s Bagley College of Engineering serves to introduce students to the history and development of military engineering. Military Engineering (GE 8303) functions as an introductory course for the college’s Master of Engineering – Military Engineering degree which kicked off last year.
Students in the GE 8303 course will cover the background on the development of the missions associated with military engineering and how risk associated with military operations adapts or changes common engineering practices. The course will trace the evolution of military organizational structure to accomplish emerging military engineering missions and how the integration new technologies influenced organizational and mission change. This historical and technological development will conclude with the current construct and capability of engineer forces across the various services.
The military engineering concentration of the Master of Engineering (MENG) program is a 30-hour program for graduate students pursuing a military career in the United States which builds upon their undergraduate degrees in engineering, math, and/or science with a graduate level engineering degree. The MENG is a multidisciplinary degree program providing graduate engineering students the opportunity to mix quality courses from the college of engineering with other MSU programs to build a degree that will help students build a personalized program of study to help achieve their future military and engineering goals.
Registration for fall 2019 is available now for all admitted students. Graduate students at MSU interested in taking the course can contact their advisor or Tamra Swann for more information.
Prospective students seeking admission to the MENG should grad.msstate.edu and select the APPLY button on the top left of the page to begin the admission process. The deadline for fall admission is August 1.
