Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering

The master's degree allows students to pursue advanced work in electrical and computer engineering technical interest areas including bioengineering, computer systems and software, digital signal processing, electrical energy, electromagnetics, electronic design and applications, microsystems, optics and photonics, systems and controls, telecommunications, and VLSI systems and digital design.

The master's degree program requires 30 credit hours beyond the bachelor's degree, including a minor outside ECE. Both thesis and non-thesis options are available. Courses are offered all three terms; however, full-time students planning to complete the MS degree in 12 months should start their programs in the fall semester.
