Descriptions and requirements for the On Campus Master of Engineering degree can be found in the Texas A&M Graduate Catalog (Master of Engineering and Master of Science non Thesis option). The only difference between the On Campus MEng and the Online MEng degree is that all requirements – all exams, projects, and other class assignments – are given through the online learning e-campus system. You have the option to attend classes on campus or take your oral examination on campus, should you choose to do so.
