M.S. Degrees in ECE


The Master’s Degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering has three tracks to match a student’s various career and professional goals. Students admitted to the M.S. Program must choose one track to complete for graduation:

  1. Coursework Option

    The coursework optiondoes not contain research or thesis requirements and instead fills the credit requirement with additional coursework. This track is ideal for students pursuing a Master’s degree for the advantage of enrolling in additional upper-level coursework.

  2. Project Option

    The project option fulfills some credits for the degree requirement through a research project of the student’s own design. The project must be approved by faculty advisers, must be submitted in a formal report, and must be presented publicly to an audience of peers and instructors. This track is ideal for students who want to perform an in-depth research project without writing and defending an entire thesis.
