Electrical & Computer Engineering Department

Master of Science in Electrical Engineering

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers you the chance to work with industry-connected faculty on real-world projects through three research-oriented research projects: Master’s in Electrical Engineering, Master’s in Computer Engineering, and PhD in Electrical Engineering.

The department’s chip design environment conforms to industry standards and gives you the practical training you need for your career. Advanced design and computation projects will help you hone your hands-on techniques and skills. You’ll also develop innovation and entrepreneurship-focused thinking through cutting-edge research. The MSEE students can take the AI concentration as an option. The AI concentration is designed based on the latest trends in the industry in developing Deep Learning and reinforcement learning algorithms and deploying them on the edge devices.


Our 39 credit hour curriculum is completed in 16 months. The 39 credit hours are composed of core courses, electives, cross disciplinary electives, capstone or thesis, and an internship.
