Electrical and Computer Systems

The Electrical and Computer Systems concentration of the Master of Science in Computational Science and Engineering is offered by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Your course of study includes completion of  computer programming, computer-based modeling, and electrical/computer engineering courses. You also conduct a research project with an electrical/computer engineering faculty member. This unique training prepares you for future engineering practice that requires engineers to master both electrical/computer engineering and computational methods. This master's program offers a research-based these option, and a course intensive, non-thesis option. We also offer a combined bachelor + master program. You can finish both degrees in as fast as 5 years!
