Tufts trains electrical engineers to excel in fields that range from image and signal processing to nanoscale engineering. Graduates of the M.S. program in electrical engineering go on to great things: founding start-ups, advancing society and industry, and studying in highly ranked Ph.D. programs, all supported by their Tufts education. 

Research areas include: 

  • Control, energy systems, and robotics
  • Electro-optical materials and renewable energy
  • Integrated circuits and VLSI
  • Microfabrication, nanotechnology, and sensors
  • Networks and information theory
  • Signal and image processing

The Master of Science degree requires a minimum of 30 semester-hour units (SHUs) and the fulfillment of at least 10 courses; all courses must be at the 100 level or above. For full-time students, four SHUs must be the Electrical and Computer Engineering Seminar.
