People with a bachelor degree who want to advance their careers by boosting their skills should consider the Electrical and Computer Engineering (MEng Thesis) degree. The research-based program usually takes two years of full-time study beyond a bachelor’s degree, placing students in a vibrant community of researchers who are focused on finding practical solutions to real-world problems. As a professional degree that is purely course-based, the program helps students get the credentials they need to work in high-tech companies. Positions can include research and development engineer, system/network architect, system designer, system engineer, application engineer, application developer and software architect.
All graduate students must pay general fees each year, as well as program fees.
