Master's Degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering
At Northeastern the Master's Degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering can be research oriented, or it can be part-time for the working student. Many full-time students are supported under either teaching or research assistantships which are awarded competitively during the application process, and which are occasionally available at other times. Part-time students will find that courses are scheduled to allow them to maintain a full-time career. Applicants for part-time study may apply for admittance in the fall or spring semesters.
Master’s Degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering (MSECE)
As of fall 2013, the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department offers two tracks for MSECE. Both tracks are available to full-time and part-time students. Applicants must select one of the following two tracks at the time of filing their application.
1) Course-Thesis Track: This is a highly competitive program with limited enrollment and is designed for students with interest in and aptitude for research. The program consists of 6 graduate-level courses (24 credits) plus 8 credit thesis totaling 32 credits.
2) Course-only Track: This program consists of 8 graduate-level courses totaling 32 credits. This is a straight forward non- research based track designed for students with an interest in industry work.
