"The emphasis on actually applying concepts is what makes Lawrence Tech’s engineering programs different from most – that and the professors. My professors all exude a certain vigor, as if my success is their number one priority – not only in the classroom,
but also in my career.” – Christopher Orr, electrical and computer engineering student

Electrical and computer engineers combine their knowledge of science, mathematics, and engineering with problem-solving skills to design, construct, and maintain the vital products, services, and information systems that fuel our technology-driven world. Many employers today believe a graduate degree is essential in order to succeed in this competitive and rapidly changing marketplace. Furthering your education can help you gain an expert level of technical proficiency, improve your marketability, and advance your career.

Electrical and Computer Engineering

In addition to preparing you for leadership roles in the primary fields of electrical, electronics, and computer engineering, a Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Lawrence Technological University can equip you to enter a variety of allied disciplines, including biomedical engineering, computer science, and aerospace engineering.

computer engineeringThe MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering program features a comprehensive curriculum developed and thoroughly assessed with assistance from an active Industrial Advisory Board, comprised of distinguished engineering professionals with knowledge of business practices and experience working in the field.

The program is designed to provide students with advanced professional skills, improve their ability to apply scientific principles in solving engineering problems, enhance their ability to communicate, and give them the background required for the pursuit of either a senior engineering position or entrance to a PhD program.

Built around the University’s motto of theory and practice, the program features a strong laboratory component, allowing you to gain practical, hands-on experience in state-of-the-art facilities. Courses emphasize digital control systems and communications, instrumentation, and computer-aided design.
Developed with working professionals in mind, the MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering is an evening program that features two options, depending on your goals. The course work-only option requires 32 credit hours – five core classes and three electives, while the 30-credit-hour thesis option requires five core classes, one elective, and a master’s thesis. Regardless of the option you choose, you will have the advantage of learning from faculty with current industry experience as well as the opportunity to interface with established mentors dedicated to your success.
