    Total: 12 Credits
 
Thesis Track Credits:
EENG 889 MS Thesis I1 3


EENG 891 MS Thesis II1 3
Prerequisite: Prerequisite: EENG 890

This is the second of a two-course sequence for master's thesis. Students will continue the research and experimentation started in the first course in the sequence. The course culminates in an oral defense of the thesis project in front of a thesis committee consisting of the student's thesis faculty advisor and other members. By the end of the semester, students will complete a publication-quality master's thesis to be archived in the NYIT library.
