Master of Electrical and Computer Engineering
The purpose of this degree is to prepare students for leading edge positions in industry in the fields of electrical and computer engineering. The Master of Electrical and Computer Engineering (M.E.C.E.) is a course-only degree program that prepares students for professional practice in electrical and computer engineering. The program can be completed in one year of full-time study.
The admission requirements for this degree follow the existing admission requirements for a master’s degree in the ECE department. Students whose accredited B.S. degree is not in electrical engineering may pursue the M.E.C.E., provided that they have an adequate background and can demonstrate proficiency in the material contained in undergraduate courses equivalent to Illinois Institute of Technology’s:
& ECE 213
|Circuit Analysis I|
and Circuit Analysis II
|ECE 218||Digital Systems||4|
|ECE 308||Signals and Systems||3|
|ECE 311||Engineering Electronics||4|
|MATH 251||Multivariate and Vector Calculus||4|
|MATH 252||Introduction to Differential Equations||4|
A student may demonstrate proficiency by successfully completing the courses or by demonstrating satisfactory performance in one or more special departmental examinations administered by the department.
Students arrange their program of study with their adviser’s approval and typically elect to build their program to emphasize one or more areas of specialization. No formal distribution requirements are imposed. Areas of specialization include communication systems, computer communication, computer engineering, power electronics, electromagnetics, electronics, VLSI and microelectronics, power systems, and signal and image processing.
