Master of Science in Applied Engineering with Civil Engineering and Construction Concentration 
Ongoing technical advances have increased the demand for highly specialized Civil Engineers. As a result, more advanced and specialized education is increasingly required for professional practice in Construction, Environmental, Geotechnical, Structural, and Transportation Engineering. Our Civil Engineering and Construction Concentration provides access to such professional specialization.

Master of Science in Applied Engineering with Electrical & Electronic Systems Concentration 
Moore’s Law continues apace, turning one generation’s dream into another’s reality. Global video conferencing on heads up displays, autonomous nanobots aiding search & rescue, solar cells connected to smart power grids, intelligent sensors feeding cloud computers, wireless energy harvest scavenging ambient radio-frequency (RF). Electrical and electronic systems are everywhere and invisible, unobtrusively improving and even extending our lives. Our EE Systems graduates will create things yet to be dreamed.

Master of Science in Applied Engineering with Energy Science Concentration 
Energy Science research and development is one of the highest priority initiatives in the global economic and political arena. The Renewable Energy and Engines Laboratory, directed by the Allen E. Paulson Endowed Chair of Renewable Energy, provides an exceptional opportunity to prepare oneself to pursue this cutting edge career. The laboratory leads the effort to develop alternative fuels for internal combustion engines in partnership with Georgia’s global vehicle producers and agricultural organizations.

Master of Science in Applied Engineering with Engineering Management Concentration 
Entrepreneurs and managers have a momentous responsibility and a crucial mission. Georgia Southern’s MSAE program emphasizes collective and critical thinking, encourages an open mind to innovation.

Master of Science in Applied Engineering with Information Technology Concentration
This program embraces the ever-changing IT industry, with studies in programming, system and network design, installation and enhancement, Internet implementation, analysis of organization computer and information needs and personnel.
