Masters Program Overview
The Master of Engineering (ME) degree is designed for working engineers, or students with a BS degree in ECE who would like to increase their technical depth in engineering. Specializations are available in Computer Engineering or Electrical Engineering.
The Master of Science (MS) degree in Computer Engineering and the Master of Science (MS) degree in Electrical Engineering require substantial thesis or project work in a specific area and prepares students for advanced study or advanced work in that area. The MS degrees have two options. Under Plan A, the student completes a thesis. Under Plan B, the student prepares an engineering project report.
If a student initially chooses an MS degree, changing to the ME degree is only possible by approval of the major professor, ECE graduate committee, and the department head.
