BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Board of Regents has approved a new master of engineering degree for its two engineering schools.

The degree was approved for South Dakota State University and South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.

Officials say the program focuses on coursework over research. It’s meant for engineers who work in or want to be in technical management roles in industry and business.

Once the program is fully implemented, School of Mines expects about 40 students will graduate each year. SDSU anticipates 21 graduates annually.

The schools intend to fund the new master of engineering program using existing resources and graduate tuition.
