Admission Requirements: Electrical and Computer Engineering, M.S.

Admission to the Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering requires a Bachelor of Science degree in computer science, engineering or a closely related field, e.g. 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 which 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 which is regionally accredited, e.g., by Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.

Applicants whose undergraduate major is different from their intended graduate program must satisfy all specific course prerequisites. This may require them to complete undergraduate courses or prerequisite graduate courses which do not count toward satisfying degree requirements.

Applicants who do not have a minimum 2.85 QPA from an accredited program, but appear to have the potential for success, may be required to take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). Admission will be based upon consideration of test results, previous academic performance, related employment and an interview.

Application Deadlines:

  • Fall semester: June 1 for international applicants, July 1 for domestic applicants
  • Spring semester: November 1 for international applicants, December 1 for domestic applicants
