The Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering 

Master of Science or Master of Engineering

Summary: The Master of Science (M.S.) degree, which requires a thesis, and the Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) degree, which requires a project and report, are the two Master's degree programs offered in Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering. The M.S. and M.Eng. degree programs are designed to meet the individual needs of graduate students. Degree preference varies among the employers. Some prefer thesis students (particularly for the demonstration of research and writing skills) while others seek the broad-based knowledge which results from more course work.

The MS in Electrical Engineering degree is offered with courses focused in the areas of communications, electromagnetics, electronic components, circuits systems, signals, systems & controls, power, photonics, and computing.

Master of Science or Master of Engineering

Systems Engineering is an interdisciplinary field that integrates many different engineering specialties into a total engineering effort to ensure an efficient and effective product (system) output. The Master of Engineering Administration degree provides practicing engineers, scientists and technical professionals with a graduate level academic experience in Technology Management that further prepares them for career advancement.

Summary: Systems Engineering is an interdisciplinary field that integrates many different engineering specialties into a total engineering effort to ensure an efficient and effective product (system) output. Systems engineering analyzes the operational needs of industrial, business and government enterprises and by applying scientific and engineering technology develops the integrated hardware and software required to meet those needs. A systems engineer is one who can apply the team approach to the process of bringing systems into being and can define their various components, identify and integrate the engineering disciplines needed to develop them and understand the system's operational and maintenance requirements for the entire consumer-use period.
