    The University of California, Berkeley College of Engineering is introducing a Master of Advanced Study in Engineering (MAS-E) asynchronously online in partnership with the Coursera platform.

    3.0 GPA is required for admission. Most students will have a prior STEM degree, but they are also open to alternative demonstration of quantitative background and prerequisites. There are math and programming prerequisites that can be met through coursework or self-study and can be met after admission.

    Tuition is 1750 per unit x 24 units = 42 000.

    Was not the UC system not allowing online degrees?

    This looks hypocritical from them

    Their ban of fully online degrees applies at the undergraduate level only (and exempts prisoners).

    University of California System Bans Fully Online Degrees: The 10-campus system closes a loophole that could have let undergraduates piece together a degree. Experts and some inside the system say that in justifying its decision, UC perpetuated outdated claims about online learning. (Susan D’Agostino, Inside Higher Ed, February 26, 2023)
