Interested in joining The Chandra Family Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering?
Texas ECE offers a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering with the option of two ABET-accredited programs of study: Electrical Engineering or Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering. Effective Fall 2022, Texas ECE is offering a Bachelor's degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering, which is seeking ABET accreditation in 2024. All three programs have a common two-year basic sequence for first- and second-year students to focus on the fundamentals of electrical and computer engineering. In the junior year, students will select areas of specialization based on their interests and career goals.
Master of Science in Engineering
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 Bachelor of Science/Master of Science in Engineering degree
Students who complete the program will receive the degree of Bachelor of Science in one of our three programs with an Integrated Option 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 Bachelors of Science portion of the combined degree plan will be reduced from 125 hours to 120 hours; the Master of Science in Engineering degree requirements are unchanged relative to the existing MSE degree.
Professional MS in Software Engineering
The software engineering executive M.S. degree equips software engineers with the knowledge and skills to take on engineering leadership positions. The curriculum focuses on current and emerging software systems and project management techniques. Classes take place on the UT campus one weekend per month. This 30-credit hour program can be successfully completed in just two years while continuing to work full-time.
