Learning From the Best in Electrical Engineering

Students will conduct research and hands-on lab work with faculty who are accomplished leaders in engineering. Professors Mahmoud Amin, Yi Wang, and Ahmed Hussein are IEEE senior members, while professor George Giakos is a fellow, to offer a few examples. In addition, the faculty offer expertise in artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, blockchain security, and wireless sensor networks. By learning hands-on from the faculty, students will learn from the best so they can advance their careers. 

As a graduate student in electrical engineering, the following concentrations are available:

  • Bioelectrical Engineering
  • Cybersecurity 
  • Cognitive and Mobile Cloud Computing 
  • Remote Sensing and Space Systems
  • Find Learning That Matches Your Lifestyle

    This 30-credit electrical engineering program can be completed within one or two years. 

    Courses are available during the fall, spring, and summer semesters with schedules that work with anyone already working full-time.

  • Join an Enthusiastic Community

    There are many opportunities to find support on campus while pursuing a master’s degree in electrical engineering, and in turn, students can give support back. Manhattan College’s classrooms are small enough to allow students to get to know each other well, and there are many student clubs and organizations to allow guidance and networking opportunities. Among these clubs is the Association for Computation Machinery, IEEE, National Society of Black Engineers, Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, Women in STEM, and so on.
  • Discover Professional Opportunities

    Faculty in this program connect students with opportunities to attend and present research at national and international conferences. Students are also encouraged to apply for several research opportunities, including the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship.

    After graduation, the opportunities are boundless – alumni have worked at Google, Apple, Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), Burke Rehabilitation Hospital, and many other top organizations and companies.
