Graduate Programs

EECS offers MS and PhD degrees in electrical engineering, computer engineering, and computer science.

Typically, MS degrees may be completed during three semesters of full-time study or two to three years of part-time study. We also offer a fully online master’s degree in computer science geared toward working professionals. Obtaining a PhD takes four to five years of full-time study for students who enter with a BS degree and about three years for students who enter with an MS degree. The department also offers an MS-MBA program in each of the three disciplines.
