With innovations that progress from concept to production in a matter of months, or even weeks, electrical and computer engineering is one of the fastest growing and broadest of all technical fields. The Online MS in Electrical & Computer Engineering program combines rigorous study with practical applications aimed at solving real-world problems, from producing more efficient and reliable computing networks to using wireless systems to increase bandwidth for ever-increasing data streams.
Students learn from and work closely with expert Electrical & Computer Engineering faculty members who are known for fueling breakthroughs that impact the world, from pioneering wireless network technologies to spurring advances in green power and biomedical systems.
This degree is also offered on campus.
Depending on your professional experience and goals, you can choose to study one technical area in considerable depth or pursue a broader program spanning several electrical and computer engineering specialization areas.
POWER SYSTEMS ENGINEERING
Safe integration of distributed and renewable power generation
WPI also offers an online graduate certificate in Electrical and Computer Engineering.
10 courses, for a total of 30 credit hours.
You will work with a faculty advisor to develop a personal, customized and relevant plan of study that can include foundational and advanced courses in: electronics, digital design, radio and microwave engineering, analog design, power systems, and systems engineering.
Students with a BS degree in electrical engineering or electrical and computer engineering may submit an application for admission to the MS program. At least 21 credits in electrical and computer engineering and 9 credits in a computer science (CS), physics (PH), engineering (BME, CHE, CE, ECE, FP, MFE, MTE, ME, RBE and SYS) and/or mathematics (MA). The program must be approved by the student's advisor and the Graduate Program Committee.
WPI Electrical & Computer Engineering graduates are in high demand and work for organizations including BAE Systems, EMC, General Dynamics, IBM, Intel, Mathworks, MITRE, National Grid USA, Nokia, Oracle, and Raytheon.
