ECCC and ECCC-RC Students

Through a cooperative agreement with Truman Education Center and the Engineer School at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri S&T offers four master's degree programs* through the Engineer Captains Career Course (ECCC). These courses are non-thesis and require 30 hours to complete. 

*These are the only degree programs available through the ECCC. 

Officers considering Missouri S&T's graduate degree programs should negotiate with their assignment officer for the following:

  1. Scheduling the 17 weeks of permissive TDY after ECCC to compete the program
  2. For those wishing to earn their master's in civil engineering or environmental engineering, it is important that you get branch to send you to an ECCC course that aligns with the normal fall or spring semester on the Missouri S&T campus.

During ECCC in-processing, Missouri S&T will conduct a briefing on the graduate degree programs and assist officers getting started with admissions and registration. Classes begin almost immediately coincident with ECCC courses; this allows officers to earn 12 credit hours and a graduate certificate by ECCC graduation.

See application instructions below. 

Military Graduate Certificates

Officers in the ECCC-RC programs can earn a graduate certificate in Military Construction Management or Military Geological Engineering through distance learning.  

After graduation from ECCC, officers approved by branch remain on station at Fort Leonard Wood as full-time students in order to complete two ‘double-time’ semesters in 16 weeks to earn their non-thesis master’s degree.
