Program description

Electrical and Computer Engineering

The USA Electrical and Computer Engineering Department (ECE) offers the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering degree with three tracks:

  • Electrical Track
  • Computer Track
  • Systems Track

A Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering is increasingly required for advanced-level employment opportunities with higher-profile national and international employers. Students who want to separate themselves from the pack in the employment race should seriously consider taking a Master’s degree either through the ABM program (see above) or as a stand-alone qualification. The programs of study provide knowledge of modern engineering concepts and practices, and build upon the knowledge and skills expected of a holder of a typical Bachelor’s degree to the point where a Master’s graduate can make high-level contributions to contemporary engineering designs. A Master’s degree is also an ideal preparation for further study towards the doctoral degree if desired.
