MS in Electrical Engineering
Columbia University

Overview

The EE MS program is flexible and customizable to the student’s individual goals. It allows students to pursue electrical engineering disciplines in depth, as well as to take a selection of courses from other Columbia engineering majors. Students can study topics from physical devices, to circuits and systems, to communications and networking, to signal, information and data processing, to computer engineering, to smart electric energy, as well as systems biology or neuroengineering.

Courses Required:
Core courses

  1. 30 course credits, all 4000-level or above, and taken for a letter grade (i.e, no P or R grades).
  2. at least 1 5 credits at, or above, 6000 level.
  3. at least 1 5 credits in EE (including joint courses); 1 2 of these should be taken within the first 24.
  4. No more than 6 research credits (e.g., ELEN E4998, ELEN E6001 , ELEN E6002).
  5. No more than 3 credits total for courses
    • Outside of SEAS and the Math & Science departments
    • (e.g., Economics or Business courses), or
    • (b) Non-technical courses in SEAS or the Math & Science departments (e.g., IEOR E4702 Human Factors) these courses require advisor approval.
  6. No credit for Math & Science courses covering traditional undergraduate engineering topics (e.g., STAT GU4203 Probability Theory).
  7. 1 credit for required PDL course (outside of 30 credits, but no tuition fee).
  8. Completion within 5 years; students on a visa need to respect the time limit of their visa,
    typically a maximum of 3 semesters.

Opportunities

All degree requirements must be completed within five years of the beginning of graduate study. Under extraordinary circumstances, a written request for an extension of this time limit may be submitted to the student’s department for approval by the department chair and the Assistant Dean. A minimum grade-point average of 2.5 is required for the M.S. degree. A student who, at the end of any term, has not attained the grade-point average required for the degree may be asked to withdraw.

The Professional Development and Leadership (PDL) program educates students to maximize
performance and achieve their full potential to become engineering leaders. The core modules focus on development of professional skills and perspectives needed to succeed in a fast-changing technical climate. M.S. students must complete the professional development and leadership course, ENGI E4000, as a graduation requirement.
