As the title states, what is the difference between a Master of Science, and Master of Science in Engineering?

Thanks,
John

One of them is probably thesis, the other non thesis.

This will certainly vary by university. You'll need to look at the catalog.

What do you mean by catalog?

aerospace.engin.umich.edu

Their graduate programs at the master level are M.S.E., M.S., and M. Engineering.

If you click on the M. Engineering link, they have M.S.E. in Aerospace Engineering, and Master of Engineering Degree in Space Engineering listed. So is a M.S.E. really just a M. Engineering degree, which doesn't require a thesis?

The way they have separated these into 3 categories is confusing me.

If you click on the M. Engineering link, they have M.S.E. in Aerospace Engineering, and Master of Engineering Degree in Space Engineering listed.

And if you click on the MS and MSE links, you see the exact requirements for each degree. If you read all the way to the bottom of the Master of Engineering Degree in Space Engineering listed page, and click on the link that says "for details", you get details - specifically that it's through the Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Space Sciences.
