A Survey of Distance Learning Programs that offer a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering DegreeAbstractThis paper surveys fourteen distance learning programs offering the master of science inmechanical engineering degree in the United States. The results of this study look at theapproximate length of time these programs have been in existence. The equivalency of thedistance learning degree and the on-campus degree are examined with regard to admissionstandards, opportunities to conduct thesis research, and the approximate number of coursesoffered each year via distance education delivery. Approximate costs of the distance learningcourse work per credit hour is also noted and the approximate enrollments in these onlineprograms are cited for the fall of 2010. The data collected in this study provides a singlecomprehensive source of distance education programs in the United States that offer the masterof science degree in mechanical engineering.
