The headphones around your neck, the turn signal in your car, the web cam above your screen — each of these was made possible by an electrical engineer. In fact, all electronics devices receive the attention, the design, and the creative input of electrical engineers.

As a student in the MS in Electrical Engineering program, you’ll use what you’ve already learned about physics, chemistry, and mathematics create the products of tomorrow. . We support this kind of initiative by providing top-flight laboratories — home to developments in microwaves, VLSI design, and robotics — as well as a faculty dedicated to advanced research.

The program will prepare you for a professional career as an entrepreneur, a practicing engineer in industry, business or government at an advanced level, or to pursue a PhD degree in electrical engineering. Three core courses, two 1-year sequences, and electives provide breadth and depth across a number of electrical engineering sub-disciplines. We also give our students the freedom to structure their curriculum. You can choose a concentration from a number of stimulating fields, including the following:

  • wireless communication
  • computer engineering
  • telecommunications and networking
  • signal processing
  • image and video processing
  • systems and control
  • electronics and VLSI
  • fields and waves
  • plasma and atmospheric physics
  • power systems and energy conversion
