Master's student sitting at computer

We provide students with the best of both worlds: a student-centered experience at a top-notch research university. You’ll join small classes and immerse yourself in cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research led by innovative faculty.

Master's degrees require a minimum of 30 credits and the fulfillment of at least 10 courses at the 100-level or above with grades of S (satisfactory) or at least a B-. Program requirements may vary.

Two convenient schedules:

Full-time: Complete your degree in only one year, or in two years with an optional thesis.
Part-time: Fit classes around your schedule and earn your degree while you’re advancing your career.

Program highlights:

  • Small class sizes
  • Personalized path of study
  • Mentorship from professors at the top of their fields
  • Collaborative research that crosses disciplines
  • Five miles from the high-tech hub of Boston

Admission requirements:

  • Application and $85 application fee
  • Academic records and resume/CV
  • Personal statement and letters of recommendation
  • GRE scores are not required for applicants who have an undergraduate or graduate degree from a U.S. institution. GRE scores are required for applicants who don’t have a degree from a U.S. institution.
  • TOEFL, IELTS, or Duolingo scores (if applicable)
  • Portfolio (optional)

  • Tufts trains electrical engineers to excel in fields that range from image and signal processing to nanoscale engineering.
