Degrees

Online Executive Master’s in Electrical and Computer Engineering

Launching in Fall of 2017, students will participate in projects that involve geographically dispersed teams and gain exposure to CEOs and thought leaders. This new online executive master’s degree allows students to earn a master’s degree remotely with only one onsite travel visit. Students will gain a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of electrical and computer engineering, and are given the opportunity for in-depth specialization in some particular aspect of these fields. 

BSEE

Texas ECE offers a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering with the option of two programs of study: Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering. Both programs are accredited by ABET and have a common two-year basic sequence for freshman and sophomore level students to focus on the fundamentals of both electrical and computer engineering. In the junior year, students will select two areas of specialization based on their interests and career goals.

MSEE

Texas ECE offers an MS degree in 9 different academic tracks, but students can also take advantage of the immense variety of resources for interdisciplinary work at The University of Texas at Austin. Most graduate students have the opportunity to participate in state-of-the-art research along with faculty researchers. 

Integrated BSEE/MSE

Students who complete the program will receive the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering: Integrated Option degree and a Master of Science in Engineering degree simultaneously after successfully completing a minimum total of 150 hours, 30 of which must qualify for the MSE program of work in ECE. The BSEE portion of the combined degree plan will be reduced from 125 hours to 120 hours; MSE degree requirements are unchanged relative to the existing MSEE degrees.

Professional MS in Software Engineering

The Professional Master’s in Software Engineering addresses the demand for influential software engineers who have an expansive understanding of a variety of critical software engineering topics. This 30-credit hour program can be successfully completed in just two years while continuing to work full-time. You will learn how to better analyze and design software systems from world-renowned professors and will acquire the tools needed to better lead and manage software projects.

PhD

Texas ECE offers a PhD degree in 9 different academic tracks, but students can also take advantage of the immense variety of resources for interdisciplinary work at The University of Texas at Austin.
