Abstract

In collaboration, the three state universities in Arizona offer a Master of Engineering degree program designed to serve the advanced educational needs of employment-bound professionals and residential students. The resulting educational program serves a target population that is best described as technically sophisticated part-time students in full-time employment. Arizona's MEng program offered 25 web courses during Spring 2002, 84 students are currently registered in the program, and 16 have graduated. These numbers are all expected to grow significantly during the coming few years. Available courses, programs of study, student demographics, and program highlights and challenges are described, as are the administrative structure and industrial partnership that support this collaborative educational program.
