Advance Your Career in Electrical and Computer Engineering
The MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) program at the University at Albany is designed to educate the next generation of professionals and innovators. While a bachelor’s degree offers a strong, broad foundation in electrical engineering and computer engineering, the master’s program provides a greater degree of specialization in one of four technical concentration areas: communications and networking, signal and information processing, electronic circuits and systems, and computer engineering.
UAlbany ECE students may choose to study full-time or part-time, and can select either a thesis option that includes a multiple-semester research project, or a non-thesis, all-course option. No matter the path taken, earning an MS in ECE is a stepping stone to career advancement or further study.
Flexibility: Study full-time or part-time; choose the thesis option or non-thesis option
Choice: Select from a wide variety of courses and the ability to build your program of study to meet your career goals.
Expert faculty: Learn from world-class, research-active faculty who are experts in their disciplines.
Diversity: Our faculty is also incredibly diverse, including a higher representation of female faculty than in most other ECE programs.
Research: With the thesis option, work closely with faculty to perform cutting-edge research.
Location: Live in proximity to New York’s Tech Valley and take advantage of numerous internship and job opportunities available within the public and private sectors of this innovative region.
Value: Save with tuition rates lower than those at most private universities.
Electrical and Computer Engineering graduates typically enjoy some of the highest starting salaries across disciplines. Getting an MS in ECE is a good way to open new job opportunities, get a promotion, gain a new area of expertise, and/or increase your salary.
