Prospective Students: Master of Engineering

A master’s degree is essential to a successful career in Electrical and Computer Engineering. An advanced degree allows a deeper technical specialization, giving you an edge in your chosen career path and making it easier to change direction in your career as opportunities arise.

The Electrical & Computer Engineering Department at Boise State offers a Master of Engineering program (MENG.) designed to develop professional engineers and leaders who understand the technical, economic, and social issues of technology.  Our program provides the opportunity to take graduate courses on scientific and technical topics, organized by technical concentrations that match your interests.

Classes are kept small to encourage interaction with your student cohort, your professors and your industry collaborators. These networks are reinforced through career advising and placement, access to alumni and industry connections, and other support.  Upon completion, you earn the Master of Engineering degree in ECE, reflecting an integrated understanding of technology, practice, and leadership.
