Master's of Engineering?

Hi,

I was wondering what people thought of a "Master's of Engineering" program?

from Wikipedia:
In the United States, the Master of Engineering degree is generally a professional degree offered as a coursework-based alternative to the traditional research-based Master of Science. It is typically a two-year program, and many universities allow students to choose between the Master of Engineering and the Master of Science. The Master of Engineering degree is offered at many leading universities in the United States and is considered a terminal degree in the field of engineering. In other words, it would not be the degree one would select if one’s overall goal is to achieve a Ph.D.

Typically, Master of Engineering students have the same course completion requirements as a Master of Science students, but do not need to perform independent research or write a thesis. The M.Eng is often referred to as a "Class Masters".
I have a BS in Physics and have been working in industry (Research and Development) for about 12 years now. I'm looking to get more education but have restrictions of family, location, full time job, etc. The MEng program I'm interested in is from an accredited univerisity but the program is all online. It would be a specialization in ElectroMagnetics, which is the field that I'm working in.

Anyone have any experience or opinions on this?

Thanks
