The Professional Master’s Program is aimed at helping professionals further their EE education and train them for enhanced careers in technology. Classes meet in the evening and students can study either full-time or part-time. Typically, the program can be completed in one-and-a-half to three years.
Students study with world-class researchers and industry professionals in courses designed to prepare graduates as industry leaders. Students interested in pursuing research credits, a master’s thesis or a Ph.D. are encouraged to consider the daytime graduate programs.
Part-time Curriculum: The part-time curriculum typically takes nine academic quarters (three calendar years) to complete. Students generally take a four-credit course plus a one-credit seminar each quarter, for a total of five credits per quarter.
Full-time Curriculum: The full-time curriculum usually takes four to five quarters (one to one-and-a-half calendar years) to complete. Full-time students must take a minimum of 10 credits each quarter and a minimum of five seminar credits during the course of their study.
Note: Students on F-1 visas are required to pursue a full-time curriculum.
