General Information

The program of course offerings at the master’s level fill three vital current needs:

  1. to provide qualified graduates of accredited undergraduate engineering and computer science programs with an opportunity to continue their professional training at an advanced level;
  2. to allow engineers and computer scientists currently employed in industry to enhance their professional training by bringing to them the latest developments in theory, and their applications to industrial practice;
  3. to provide graduate students working toward the doctorate and a career in research with a firm grounding in the theoretical foundations necessary for such work.
The City College offers the following Master’s degrees in Electrical Engineering:
M.E. (E.E.) (Professional Master’s Degree)
M.S. (Engineering) (For students preparing for the Ph.D. program; Degree is also awarded to students who do not have a bachelor’s degree in engineering)

ATTENTION:

Effective Spring 2016, the following changes were made to graduate course EE G7100 - Wireless Multimedia Networks:
  1. Course number is now EE I7500.
  2. Course name is now Advanced Wireless Networks.
  3. Course content will include the state of the art technologies today in wireless networks. 
  4. No prerequisites needed to take the course, however, familiarity with certain background information such as wireless communications and computer networks is highly desirable.
