Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello Everyone,

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 cant 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 cant very easily just move (perhaps for a really good job but not just to be a student).

From the title of your thread and the content of your post, it's not clear what question you are asking. It reads as if you can't afford the tuition for an online masters from a US school and are wondering whether it's worthwhile to get an online masters from a German school (presumably cheaper)? You should clarify your question.

Yes this is what I am saying
