Graduate Program in Telecommunications

Main Page | Course Offerings | Curriculum | Electives | Faculty

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers an M.S. degree in Telecommunications.

While emphasis is in Telecommunications Systems, Networks, and Transmission, the inter-disciplinary program incorporates course work in Telecommunications Policy, as well as Business and Project Management.

The program offers two parallel tracks: an engineering track for those with an undergraduate degree in engineering or similar calculus-based curriculum, and a non-engineering track for those with other undergraduate backgrounds.

Both thesis and non-thesis options are available. The thesis option requires a minimum of 24 credit hours of course work and a minimum of six credits for thesis. The non thesis option requires a minimum of 36 credits of course work including six hours of a directed individual study project over two semesters.

Our aim is to graduate professionals with a balanced set of skills relevant to the current telecommunications industry practice.
