Students in the ECE M.S. program are provided with a thorough background in the fundamentals of electrical or computer engineering, as well as the opportunity for in-depth specialization in some particular aspect of these fields. Upon enrollment in the department, students are given the opportunity, with the help of an academic advisor and faculty mentor, to choose an educational program that is consistent with their backgrounds and is best suited to their own academic goals. Additional information about The Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE) can be found here.
