ME 597 — Independent Study (Non-thesis Master's Project)

At least 4 hours of ME 597 credit is required of students in the online MSME degree program choosing the non-thesis option.

To register for ME 597, you must first find a professor who is willing to work with you on a non-thesis option Master's project. We recommend that you begin with a professor with whom you've taken an online course. This professor must email OCEE at engr-o2pep@illinois.edu with the following information:

  • Your name
  • Course number
  • Credit hours
  • Semester for which you will enroll in ME 597

A CRN will be created and you will be automatically registered in the correct section of ME 597.

It is very important that you follow this procedure so that you do not inadvertently register for the course as an on-campus student.

Prerequisites: Consent of instructor.

Credit: 1 to 4 hours
