Disciplinary Concentrations

You select an appropriate EST&P disciplinary concentration when applying for admission. The choice should align with your professional goals and should take into consideration your undergraduate degree preparation. Each concentration is associated with a CMU engineering department who specifies those courses permitted to meet their disciplinary concentration.

As an admitted student you are a member of the EST&P program and your MS degree will be awarded by the College of Engineering.  You take roughly a third of your coursework from your disciplinary concentration department, but are not a student enrolled in that department's degree program.

Tables of approved courses permitted to satisfy each of the six disciplinary concentrations are available via the following hyperlinks:

    Disciplinary concentration in Chemical Engineering
    Disciplinary concentration in Civil & Environmental Engineering
    Disciplinary concentration in Electrical & Computer Engineering
    Disciplinary concentration in Engineering & Public Policy
    Disciplinary concentration in Materials Science & Engineering
    Disciplinary concentration in Mechanical Engineering
