Your Plan of Study

Each student in the Industry-Oriented Master's Program designs a plan of study suited to their technical background and career goals.

The MSECE with a Concentration in ECE Technology Innovation program requires 30 credits of coursework distributed as follows:

  • 12-15 credits of technical depth in one of the program technical focus Areas
  • 6-9 credits of technical breadth
  • 9 credits of professional development

Each student chooses a technical focus area. At least 6 of the technical breath electives should be through one-credit short courses to provide students in this program with much more breadth than is possible in a conventional program. The professional development credits are obtained through the MS Ideas to Innovation course, which links a yearlong project to professional skills development seminars.

Your Plan of Study will largely consist of 3-credit, graduate level courses offered by the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering.  See the list of courses here.

The suite of one-credit courses is a special part of this program. See the current list of one-credit courses here.
