The Master of Engineering in Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) program at WPI lets you focus on one of several specialty areas or obtain a more broad-based graduate education, combined with courses from the Foisie Business School.

As one of WPI’s flagship departments, ECE offers a collaborative, innovative, and boundary-pushing environment for graduate study and research. Here, you’ll find internationally renowned faculty, groundbreaking research, and state-of-the-art equipment and facilities.

Whether you want courses on campus or online, and are taking them full-time or part-time, you may tailor our rigorous, yet flexible, program to meet your interests and needs.



A Master of Engineering in Electrical & Computer Engineering delivers the same technical course work as the master of science degree, but with the option to focus some courses on business topics.

With a majority of courses in Electrical & Computer Engineering, combined with courses across areas of business, computer science, engineering, and mathematics, you’ll be well prepared to make an impact in your field of expertise. A thesis option isn’t available for this program, but you’re encouraged to develop an independent research project as part of your degree program.

Students who do not include courses from the Foisie Business School in their degree program should consider instead completing the Master of Science program in Electrical & Computer Engineering.
