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. UAlbany ECE students have completed internships and gone on to careers at regional, national and global organizations.
If you’re a current UAlbany undergraduate student with at least a 3.2 GPA, you can save time and money by beginning your MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering degree coursework as early as your junior year. Up to 6 academic credits, billed at the undergraduate rate, will count towards both degrees – so you can complete your combined program in only 5 years and spend less than you would if you completed each program separately.
Learning objectives that UAlbany students are expected to attain through their course of study within their academic program.
- Demonstrate extensive knowledge in one area of Electrical and Computer Engineering;
- Apply their knowledge in the science, mathematics and engineering disciplines to solve problems;
- Read, interpret, and utilize information in the published literature in an area of Electrical and Computer Engineering; and
- Present technical information in a variety of formats, including written reports and oral presentations.
