Advanced Degrees Pursued by UMR Undergraduates
This study discusses a survey whose website link was sent to 10,000 UMR B.S. graduates since 1970 to collect information about advanced degrees received as well as interest in pursuing further education. The goal was to get a better understanding of the areas of interest in advanced degrees by engineering and science undergraduates. The primary categories of advanced degrees are engineering, science, engineering management and business administration. Information was requested to determine whether the degree choices made by those receiving advanced degrees were influenced significantly by cost, geographical locations, and/or time convenience. In addition, information was requested of those interested in pursuing an advanced degree whether they would be interested in a distance education program offering, i.e., via Internet.
