Programs of Study

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers the following Master's degree programs:

  • Master of Science in Electrical Engineering
  • Master of Science in Computer Engineering
  • Master of Science in Data Science
  • Master of Science in Human-Robot Interaction
  • Master of Science in Materials Science and Engineering

The department offers a doctoral program in Electrical Engineering.

The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department is a growing interdisciplinary engineering department with a focus on research and education in a wide variety of sub-disciplines, ranging from image and signal processing to nanoscale engineering. The department gives students a unique perspective on how electrical and computer technology can be used to solve important human problems. With expert faculty, cutting-edge research, and innovative facilities, our students are given the opportunity and resources to make significant contributions to the field and become leaders in industry, government, and academia.

The department has particular strengths in the areas of VLSI design, signal processing, communication theory, electro-optics, and microwave, with newer facilities for research in emerging areas of biotechnology, nanotechnology and computer engineering.

In addition to our own expertise, other departments in the School of Engineering offer programs in distinctive specialties, including environmental health, hazardous materials management, product engineering, human factors, multimedia, and biomedical optics.

The School of Engineering also offers an cross-departmental, interdisciplinary bioengineering master's program that provides a broad engineering and biotechnology curriculum, while offering a focus on a specific engineering track that best fits students' interests and career choices. This combination gives our bioengineering graduates professional flexibility, a distinct competitive advantage in the ever-changing field of bioengineering. All of our M.S. programs can be taken on a part-time basis.

Tufts offers a dual degree master's program between the School of Engineering and Tufts Gordon Institute. Students earn two degrees: an M.S. offered by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and an M.S. Innovation & Management (MSIM) in an accelerated time frame and at a reduced cost.

The department participates in two Joint-Ph.D. programs: One in Materials Science and Engineering and one in Human-Robot Interaction.

The Graduate School also offers an interdisciplinary doctoral program that allows students to devise their course of study.
