I know that after Coast Guard Academy cadets graduate and do a 2 year tour of duty at sea, they can start graduate school and earn a masters degree. I was looking at a brochure called Coast Guard Engineering: A Challenging Career. It said that, in the case of electrical engineering, one of the places that Coast Guard officers can get a masters degree is MIT. I was on the website of MIT's department of electrical engineering. They offer a masters of engineering, but this degree is only available to MIT undergraduates. They also offer a masters of science in electrical engineering, but this degree is only a stepping stone to a Ph.D. A terminal masters of science in electrical engineering is not offered. They also offer an engineers degree. This is apparently something in between a masters and a Ph.D. Is this the degree that Coast Guard officers going to MIT for electrical engineering get?
