Do you offer a graduate degree program in electrical and computer engineering?

NYIT offers a Master of Science program in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Old Westbury and Manhattan campuses. The curriculum emphasizes applied and design-oriented engineering skills coupled with the underlying theoretical concepts. The curriculum is comprised of 36 credits, divided into three groups.

Admission to the M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering requires a bachelor of science degree in computer science, engineering, or a closely related field, such as physics or mathematics from an accredited program with a minimum 2.85 QPA. For applicants holding a degree in engineering, an accredited program is one that is accredited by the engineering accreditation commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).  For those who have completed degrees in computer science or a closely related field, an accredited program is one taken at a college that is regionally accredited, such as by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.

Scores from the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) are required to be submitted with your application for admission. International students will also need to take the TOEFL and obtain a score of 500-550 or more on the written-based exam, 173-213 on the computer-based exam, and 61-79/80 on the Internet-based exam. The GRE and the TOEFL code for NYIT are 2561.
