The Engineering Program encourages students to participate in the activities of the McNeese Engineering Society, the student chapter of the Louisiana Engineering Society. Students are also urged to participate in the student chapters of AIChE, ASCE, IEEE, ASME, NSBE, ACM and SWE. Juniors and seniors with high academic achievements are invited to join Mu Omega Sigma, the McNeese Engineering Honor Society. Eligible students are encouraged to pursue intern or co-op positions with local industries. Registration as a professional engineer will assume an increasingly important role in the future of engineering. The CCMS Department recommends that all chemical, civil, and mechanical seniors take the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam prior to graduation.
The Master of Engineering program offers specializations in Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Engineering Management, and Mechanical Engineering. The Master of Engineering program is a flexible, professionally oriented postgraduate education program. It offers courses leading to advanced degrees for the recent graduate or experienced engineer. The program may be tailored to provide expertise in areas supportive of mid-career advancement or to simply continue an individual's education in his/her chosen field. Course credits for the degree include topics in project management, topics in the participant's engineering specialization, and topics in math, science, and other related areas. The selection of courses will be made under the direction and with the approval of an advisor. Courses may be chosen to satisfy the individual student's needs as long as prerequisites are satisfied.
