The M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering is designed primarily to serve those students who wish to expand their knowledge of traditional electrical and computer engineering principles. This knowledge can serve as preparation for a doctoral program or an intermediate level position in industry. The M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering has two options: Electronics Engineering and Computer Engineering.

The master's degree requires 30 semester units beyond the baccalaureate. Either a thesis plan or a comprehensive examination plan may be chosen. Active areas of study and research in the Department currently include high speed analog and digital electronics, continuous and discrete-time control systems, digital signal processing, electro-optics, microprocessor systems, digital system design and simulation, computer architecture, computer networks, and communications.


The MSECE Program Mission is to provide the preparation to maintain currency and conduct research and development in the fields of electrical and/or computer engineering.
