This program is an interdisciplinary master's degree program without a required masters thesis component. It requires 30 semester hours of graduate credit in 4000, 5000 and 6000-level courses. By university regulations, at least 3 of the courses must be 6000 level lecture classes.
The program is offered using distance-learning methods, so there is no formal residency requirement. Of the total 30 credit hours required to obtain the degree, a maximum of nine (9) credit hours of graduate-level work with a minimum grade of "B" can be transferred from other universities if approved by the program coordinator. (Classes must have been completed in the last five years to be eligible for transfer). The balance of the credits must be taken through Missouri S&T. A minimum of fifteen (15) credit hours must be geological engineering courses.
* The Geotechnics Graduate Certificate does not require the GRE or TOEFL. Successful completion of the certificate program with grades of "B" or better in all classed results in acceptance in the ME programs, and waives the GRE requirement. Classes taken for the certificate will count towards the masters degree.
