Master of Telecommunications and Software Engineering

Master of Telecommunications and Software Engineering

Collaborative program with the Department of Computer Science

The Master of Telecommunications and Software Engineering (M.T.S.E.) is a course-only degree program that prepares students for professional practice in telecommunications and information technologies. The program, jointly offered by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and Department of Computer Science (CS), can be completed in one year of full-time study. The M.T.S.E. is a professional master’s degree requiring a minimum of 30 credit hours of adviser-approved coursework.

Admission requirements for this degree follow the existing admission requirements for master’s degrees in the ECE department. A person holding a B.S.E.E., a B.S.CP.E., or a B.S.C.S. degree has the necessary broad background to undertake the M.T.S.E. program. A student without adequate background in specific areas is required to demonstrate proficiency in prerequisite courses; an abbreviated course list is given below.

Specific proficiency courses will be detailed for each student at the time of admission to the M.T.S.E. program. A student may demonstrate proficiency by successfully completing the courses or by demonstrating satisfactory performance in one or more special examinations administered by the department.
