If you are a busy working professional, you can take advantage of the flexibility and convenience of the SMU Engineering distance learning programs delivered across town and across the nation. Joining with thousands of students worldwide you can benefit from digitally-recorded instruction in all graduate engineering degree programs. SMU Engineering graduate course lectures are recorded "live" in one of the tele-studio classrooms. The live classroom recording includes the lecture, all dialogs among students in the class and the professor. High quality DVDs are sent by mail or UPS. You watch the lecture within seven days to keep up with course content and requirements. Homework is return by email, fax or regular mail. Course notes, lecture notes, syllabus and other documents are available on-line. The professors are widely regarded as some of the nation's best teachers and mentors providing the highest quality traditional engineering education. You can contact professors by phone, fax, email, or regular mail.
In addition, the SMU School of Engineering emphasizes the study of technology, leadership, business operations, and entrepreneurship in basic engineering areas while providing exposure to the new areas of e-technology, information engineering, and knowledge engineering.
This educational process prepares graduates to be highly valued engineers with the appropriate knowledge to rapidly assume important management and leadership positions and to become technical entrepreneurs in a globally demanding world, or to attend graduate and professional schools.
