    Frequently Asked Questions

    What Is the Difference Between an M.S. (Master Of Science) and a Professional Master's Degree?

    The Master of Science (M.S.) and professional master's degrees (which include the Master of Engineering) differ in a way that the Master of Science contains a research and thesis component at the end of the programme, whereas the professional master's does not. The two degrees have the same coursework, faculty, and overall quality. Students who aim to earn a Ph.D. later frequently enroll in the M.S. programme, but those who want to develop their professions (without necessarily pursuing a Ph.D.) often enroll in a professional master's degree program.

    Will I be allowed to work while attending school?

    F-1 visa holders are permitted to hold graduate assistantships and other forms of on-campus employment, but they are not permitted to work off-campus. J-1 visa holders are allowed to work both on and off campus (with proper work authorization).
