Participants may choose to attend Texas MSTC class weekends on campus in Austin, via synchronous webcast, or utilize a combination of the two options. As classes are archived online after the live session, participants may watch the lectures later if they are unable to make the live class or desire review. Candidates may complete their degree without ever attending the weekend classes in Austin, but are required to attend May Launch Week, August Launch Week, and the International Trip in person.
Our online students follow the same rigorous curriculum as the students that attend person, and the majority of project teams will have a combination of both online and in-person students. Our online students participate live during classes via live web streams and follow the same assignment schedules as their in-person counterparts. The online education option for our one-year master's degree provides maximum flexibility and convenience to those who work or reside beyond the Central Texas area.
