M.S. in Electrical & Computer Engineering - Message from the Director

Dear Prospective Student,

Electrical and computer engineering lead in innovation across a broad swath of technology including microelectronics, semiconductors, power and power electronics, photonics, image and signal processing, computer architecture, telecommunications, electromagnetics and bioengineering. Professionals who receive the tools they need to take the lead in creating next generation technologies using fundamental design disciplines are at an advantage.

Fairfield's M.S. in Elecrical & Computer Engineering (MSECE) program at Fairfield will provide you with the knowledge and skills you'll need to innovate and lead in your discipline in the framework of research and development in academic institutions, the industrial workplace, research laboratories, or service organizations. You'll have exposure to the high-tech areas of electrical and computer engineering, including:

  • System and product engineering
  • Hardware and software design
  • Embedded systems
  • Communications
  • Control systems
  • Computer architecture
  • Visualization and multimedia systems

As a student enrolled in the program, you'll work with faculty who are connected to the engineering workplace and bring into the classroom first-hand experience from engineering practice. In addition, you'll have ample opportunities for industry experience through internships and work assignments. You'll work with students and faculty who have a passion for the discipline, concern for the integrity of the learning process, motivation for learning and inquiry, and capacity to tackle problems and design successful solutions.
