Careers

What Can I Do with a Master of Engineering in Electrical Engineering?

The flexibility of an electrical or computer engineering degree can't be overstated; this highly lucrative degree could mean working in aerospace, computers, or many other areas. A bachelor's degree will get you into the field, but a master's will provide you with even more opportunities. If you're looking to enhance your electrical or computer engineering knowledge while making yourself more marketable, our program is right for you.

Our program is intended to meet your educational needs as a practicing engineer. You will have the opportunity to enhance and/or develop the skills, knowledge, and understanding that are critical to today practicing engineers.

Students wanting to earn their bachelor and master’s degrees may qualify for our Accelerated program, which allows students to count six units toward both degrees, shortening the time to graduation.

With further education, one of these paths is possible:
  • Research and Development Engineer
  • System Design Engineer
  • Engineering Consultant
  • Computer, Electrical, or Electronics Engineer
