GE-ACE program description

GE-ACE program in MSE
The General Electric Corp. provides qualified employees the opportunity to earn a Master's without Thesis degree in MSE from The Ohio State University. GE-ACE students are provided sabbatical time to attend classes in the MSE department. Additionally, students may use GE A & B Courses toward fulfillment of MS non-thesis degree requirements.

Graduate Non-Degree program

OSU Graduate Non-Degree program
The Graduate Non-Degree (GND) program permits the student to "test drive" graduate level courses without the requirement of being admitted to a degree-granting program. Potential applicants who have a verifiable baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution and who do not intend to pursue a graduate degree at Ohio State may register for courses under the graduate non-degree designation.
