M.Eng students can take a special course, in which they develop a small project. The basic Calendar description is as follows:
SYSC 5900 [0.5 credit] (ELG 6188) Systems Engineering Project Students pursuing the non-thesis M.Eng. program conduct an engineering study, analysis, and/or design project under the supervision of a faculty member.
These are on-campus projects in which, instead of taking a course, you work for one term under the supervision of a Professor in your area of choice.
Most professor would be available to supervise such projects; if you took a course and you like the topics, contact the professor and discuss the option of doing a project.
