Electrical Engineering - M.S.

As a graduate student in electrical engineering, you will learn to design and operate all kinds of complex systems and devices.

Why Choose Electrical Engineering?

This badge signifies our electrical engineering masters program is a stem-designated program.

Electrical engineers in the U.S. are typically paid six-figure salaries, according to U.S. statistics. The need for electrical engineers is also growing, and is set to increase 7% by 2030, The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports

Faculty teaching in this 30-credit graduate electrical engineering program are leaders in the field. And, because of the College’s close relationships in the industrial, business and healthcare sectors in New York City and worldwide, graduates are prepared to excel in the engineering profession.

For added flexibility, the program can be completed in two years or accelerated into one year. 

Customize Your Degree

The Electrical & Computer Engineering department offers the following graduate program concentrations: 

  • Bioelectrical Engineering
  • Cybersecurity 
  • Cognitive and Mobile Cloud Computing 
  • Remote Sensing and Space Systems

Students can further customize their degree by selecting specific courses and research interests in one of the following areas: space and aerospace systems, biomedical engineering, bioinspired robotic vision, robotic vision, imaging and computer graphics, unmanned autonomous guiding systems, Internet of Things (IoT), quantum computing, cybersecurity systems, power grids, green energy and energy conversion systems.

Faculty & Research

Students may participate in research and other activities that reinforce concepts learned in the classroom. Throughout these experiences, faculty are available to support individual students with research projects and eventually, job placement. Almost all required classes are taught by full-time faculty, who are highly productive in research, as evidenced by the numbers of peer-reviewed journal articles published annually. 

The Electrical & Computer Engineering department employs ten full-time faculty, among them Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Fellow George Giakos, and three IEEE Senior Members; Mahmoud Amin, Ahmed Hussein and Yi Wang. Find our full list of faculty here.

Educational Opportunities 

Graduate students can apply for a National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship, which recognizes and supports outstanding students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. The fellowship includes a stipend to support international research and professional development. Additional research opportunities exist through industrial sponsorships and internships.

Students in this program participate in distinguished national and international conferences, and have in the past received prestigious awards from the IEEE and other professional societies.
