Program Objectives

The program aims to equip students to:

  1. 1.Apply advanced engineering training across various electrical specializations.
  2. 2.Enhance expertise for practicing engineers.
  3. 3.Ready students for doctoral programs in Electrical and Computer Engineering or related fields.
  4. 4.Expand academic knowledge and analytical skills.
  5. 5.Integrate undergraduate fundamentals and advanced knowledge to solve complex electrical and computer engineering problems.


Admission Requirements

Admission to the MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering program is subject to the graduate admission requirements of the university as stated in the catalog under “Graduate Admission”. In addition, the following requirements are to be met:

  1. 1.Bachelor of Engineering degree in Electrical/Computer engineering or its equivalent from a recognized university (holders of BS degrees in engineering will have to take a set of remedial courses to be specified on a case-by-case basis in order to meet the total number of credits required).
  2. 2.Cumulative GPA of 3.0 minimum (or its equivalent from a recognized faculty of engineering).
  3. 3. GRE Scores.
  4. 4.Approval of the Faculty Graduate Committee.

Furthermore, applicants should be able to demonstrate proficiency in the English language. All English requirements, as stated in the catalog under “Graduate Admission”, are to be fulfilled.



Graduation Requirements

The program leads to the degree of Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering awarded once the following requirements are fulfilled:

  1. 1.The candidate must complete a total of 30 credits with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0/4.0. The minimum passing grade of a graduate course is “C.” Students in graduate studies are required to maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 in all courses taken for graduate programs with no more than 2 Cs per program. Failed courses may be repeated once provided that the grade on the failed course is equal to “D” or higher. Failing a course with an “F” grade means an automatic exclusion from the program.
  2. 2. Holders of a Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical/Computer Engineering (5-year program leading to the degree of BE) from a recognized university may apply to transfer a maximum of 18 credits from their undergraduate upper-level major elective courses. Only courses with a “B” grade can be considered for transfer.
  3. 3. The candidate must attend a series of 0-carrying credit seminars as recommended by the Graduate Committee of the Faculty. The course grading is based on attendance and is pass or fail.
  4. 4.The residency requirements and maximum load per semester are as per rules and regulations for graduate programs at NDU.
