Graduate Pipeline Program

The Graduate Pipeline Program offers post-graduate students from an FIU international partner universities the opportunity to complete a engineering and computing master’s program at FIU. Earning your graduate degree at FIU means joining a community of scholars whose cutting-edge research pushes the frontiers of knowledge. It means working with faculty members whose innovative scholarship places FIU among the top ranks of America’s leading research universities. Upon completion of program graduation requirements, post-graduate students are awarded with a Master’s degree from FIU.

How It works?

International students visit the program coordinator at their home institution managing the FIU partnership to discuss the program, the student’s qualifications, and the application process. Participating students study for one to two years at FIU. Once admitted, the student will take 30–36 credits depending on the program selected.

Program Benefits:

  • Diverse Student Body
  • Professional Development Opportunities
  • Various Master’s degrees available
  • A Worlds Ahead experience

Overseas and Online Programs

Students interested in pursuing a professional FIU graduate degree while studying in their home country during weekend classroom sessions may apply for the overseas program. Together, the universities provide campus resources, administrative staff, lecture facilities, and distinguished faculty. International students seeking online opportunities may apply to the Master of Engineering Management. Students in both the overseas and online programs benefit from earning a Master’s degree from FIU while learning the same curriculum as a student studying at FIU on the Miami campuses.

How It works?

Participating students study for one to two years at our international partner university or via FIU online. Once admitted, the student will take 30 credits depending on the program selected. The courses are offered on a convenient schedule. Participating students who complete the program will receive a Master’s degree from the FIU College of Engineering and Computing.

Program Benefits:

  • Degree from a top 100 ranked U.S. Public University
  • Administrative support from both universities
  • Cutting-edge and interdisciplinary curriculum
  • Distinguished faculty experts




The Division of External Programs (DEP) within the Florida International University (FIU) College of Engineering and Computing (CEC) has partnered with UCC to offer the FIU Master of Science in Engineering Management (MSEM) in Kingston, Jamaica. Students in the overseas program benefit from earning a master’s degree from FIU while learning the same curriculum as taught by FIU distinguished faculty in the Miami campus.

How it works?

Interested working professionals and post graduate students can attend an Information Session to discuss the program, the prospective student’s qualifications, and the application process. Interested prospective students can apply to join the next UCC cohort using the FIU graduate school application. Once admitted, students will take 10 courses offered in a hybrid format with FIU faculty traveling to Jamaica to offer lectures on select weekends throughout the mini-semesters, along with course material that will be provided online.
