A multidisciplinary course approach is generally taken for the completion of graduate program. Each student is expected to build a strong technical base and add work pursued not only in the College of Engineering, but also possibly in the Graduate School of Business, Community and Regional Planning, the LBJ School of Public Affairs, or other academic areas that might pertain to his/her interest. There are three different degree programs available for graduate study namely Master in Science, PhD and Joint Master degree with LBJ school.
