Master of Electrical & Computer Engineering

Become an Advanced Problem Solver

The master’s in electrical and computer engineering (MECE) is a non-thesis program focused on developing expertise in one of three key focus areas. Expertise is grown by performing cutting-edge coursework and completing a deeply technical year-long capstone project. The program can be completed in three to four semesters.
