Program Description:

Electrical and computer engineering (formerly electrical engineering) is concerned with the use of electrical phenomena for communication, computation, information transformation, measurement, and control. Within these broad categories there exist application areas affecting nearly every facet of society. Electrical engineering draws upon mathematics and the basic sciences of physics, chemistry, and materials in developing the technology leading to new devices, and the techniques for describing and designing the processes that take place in electrical systems. The strength of the Hopkins program lies in the active involvement of the faculty in research and development, and the faculty’s commitment to fostering students’ understanding of the theory and practice of the discipline. Within the Whiting School of Engineering, two master’s degree programs are offered in electrical and computer engineering, the Master of Science and the Master of Science in Engineering. The Master of Science (M.S.) degree is offered through the part-time programs and is administered by a program committee. The M.S. program course requirements are described in detail below. It provides graduate education in both the fundamentals of various branches of electrical and computer engineering and in the more specific aspects of current technologies of clear importance. The aim is to serve working engineers primarily; nearly all students participate part-time. All courses are offered in evening hours at the Applied Physics Laboratory and at the Dorsey Center and Montgomery County Campus. The faculty are drawn from the technical staff of the Applied Physics Laboratory, from government and local industry, and from the full-time faculty of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The areas of interest within the M.S. program span a broad spectrum of specialties. Courses are offered within the general areas of telecommunication
