So I have been looking for some time now to find an online program in EE/mathematics/physics. There are a number of programs I have found (purdue, johns hopkins, etc) but the prices are absolutly staggering. I have paid my dues to the student loan machine with my BS degree in Chemical enigneering from the Colorado School of Mines and have since paid those loans.

I have taken almost 40 credits of EE undergraduate work to include advanced level mathematics (advanced engineering math and PDE's).

I would like to continue on doing a masters in EE/mathematics/physics but I simply can not endure 3000-3700 a class.

I would love to take

tensors

General Relativity & red shift

AI

CFD/finite element

Fourier optics

lasers

digital signal processing

possibly advanced control systems

The university system where I live offers BS programs and the professors want to offer masters level course work (hence the "480" level PDE courses and antenna theory which were taught at a graduate level and included assocaited legendra polynominals and EM scattering of EM waves off a surface (I would hazard to call it edge diffraction theory but I am pretty sure it was). I am also highly interested in design and construction of scientific apparatus and have learned solid works to that end.

After my oil and gas job lay off I may be working at a liquor store so I can't afford to pay out massive sums of money for these courses. At the end of the day I would like to walk away with a formal degree so that I can add it to my resume in the hopes that our 3rd world employer barrons smile upon me.

I have significant family in the area and my wife still has a good job here, step son in school, etc so I can't very easily just move (perhaps for a really good job but not just to be a student).
