Attending UNT

Admission requirements

Our program is open to students with a degree in engineering, computer science or a related field. Your transcripts will be reviewed to determine if your background is suitable for admission into the concentration of your choice and/or if leveling coursework is required. If leveling coursework is needed, you may be required to take undergraduate leveling courses to prepare for coursework in the concentration of your choice.

Degree requirements

You can expect to take 21 hours of core courses and 12 hours in your chosen concentration.

Core courses will help you explore:

  • Logistics and supply chain management
  • Management of people and businesses
  • Product reliability and quality
  • Technology innovation
  • The design of experiments

Concentration areas focus on construction management and energy.

When you graduate, you will be able to:

  • Develop design of experiments for Six Sigma and associated methodologies for cost and quality improvement in process and product engineering
  • Develop solutions to logistics and supply chain management issues
  • Engage in strategic and entrepreneurship activities
  • Manage the development of engineering projects and their human and societal impacts

Financial assistance

Teaching and research assistantships are available to help you pursue your graduate degree. These assistantships provide you with a monthly stipend and may qualify you for in-state tuition rates or tuition and fee support. You also can apply for UNT scholarships, as well as departmental scholarships within the College of Engineering. The general scholarship deadline is March 1 of each year. Apply and learn more.
