Enriching Scholarship & Collaboration
As a collaborative community, students conduct research alongside notable faculty who hold many distinctions, including membership with the National Academy of Engineering, IEEE Fellows, award-winning researchers, multiple patent holders, and editors of prestigious journals.The department offers Masters Degrees, Doctoral Degrees and Graduate Certificates for those pursuing advanced studies.
Master of Engineering
Master of Engineering (ME) degrees are offered in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, and Networked Information Systems. Students in each program are required to complete three core courses and an additional seven elective courses. Three elective courses must be selected according to an area of concentration within the student's program. Typically, three full semesters are required to complete the degree.
Undergraduates may arrange to complete their Master's degree in parallel with a Bachelor's degree. This option generally requires a total of five years of study.
A Doctorate degree is available in both Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering.
Research areas include:
- Networked systems security
- Multimedia technologies and systems
- Wireless transceivers
- Image compression
- Mobile networks including ad-hoc networks
- Efficient and reliable transmission of media-rich information over noisy channels
- Signal detection and estimation
- Image processing
- Network performance analysis
- Modeling of microwave structures
Students can also pursue multidisciplinary degree programs, such as Computer Science, Physics, and Biomedical Engineering. These programs allow students to take advantage of the faculty and facilities in other departments in order to complete their academic studies and research.
Graduate certificates are four-course sequences designed for professionals who wish to increase their knowledge in a targeted area. Most are offered online through Stevens award-winning WebCampus
- Autonomous Robotics
- Digital Signal Processing
- Digital Systems and VLSI Design
- Microelectronics and Photonics (Interdisciplinary)
- Multimedia Technology
- Networked Information Systems
- Real-Time and Embedded Systems
- Satellite Communications Engineering (Interdisciplinary)
- Secure Network Systems Design
- Wireless Communications
Electrical Engineer/Computer Engineer
The degrees of Electrical Engineer and Computer Engineer serve students interested in continuing education past a Master's degree but not wishing to proceed to a Doctorate degree. These programs of study require 30 credits of coursework beyond a Master's degree. In addition, a significant student project must be completed.
Graduate Co-op Program
Unique among most universities in the Unites States, Stevens offers a Graduate Cooperative Education Program that provides relevant learning experiences for students in business, industry and government. This allows for students to apply their technical knowledge in a supportive workplace while being actively engaged with new technologies in a continuous on-the-job learning environment. Students utilize their critical thinking skills to understand methodologies and processes and produce new knowledge for the global marketplace. They are exposed to real-time demands, communicate in all mediums with all levels of management and be accountable for their projects.
