XU/UC Masters in Engineering Partnership

Xavier University has partnered with the University of Cincinnati to offer students interested in specialized fields of Engineering clear tracks to pursue a 1-year Masters in Engineering or a 2-year, research-based Masters in Science at the University of Cincinnati in:

  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Materials Science Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Aerospace Engineering

Specifically, Xavier University students who graduate with a degree in Applied Physics, Physics, or Engineering Physics, have taken the prerequisite coursework (as defined below), have maintained an overall grade point average of at least 3.3/4.0 in their major, who are admissible to UC according to current university policies, and who have the endorsement of their XU Department Chair will, on application, be admitted to the applicable Master's Degree Program at UC. Those students admitted will be offered financial support in the form of a partial tuition scholarship for the first semester of studies, renewable according to UC policies for the duration of studies for those students making satisfactory progress (as defined by UC according to its policies) toward the degree.
