Cornell ECE Degree Programs

Electricity itself was still a novelty when Cornell University introduced the nation's (and the world's) first course of study in electrical engineering in 1883.

Now, the reach of electrical and computer engineering extends from the nanoscale level of integrated electronics to terrestrial-scale power grids; from single-transistor devices to networks comprising a billion nodes.

The School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell University offers three nationally ranked academic degree programs...

Bachelor of Science Degree

Lucas1_bridgeStudents earn an accredited Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in a program that encompasses digital and computer systems, embedded processors, digital signaling processing, R.F. (wireless) systems, optical communications, atmospheric and space plasmas, solid-state electronics, integrated circuit design and fabrication, and biomedical applications such as image processing, sensors, and signal analysis. From the nanoscale level of integrated electronics to terrestrial-scale power grids, electrical and computer engineers will be at the forefront of solving issues facing society in the next generations [more info].

Master of Engineering Degree

Nithin1_bridgeThe Master of Engineering Degree (M.Eng.) offers thorough coverage of the topics important to the field of electrical and computer engineering. The program is intended for students seeking advanced training in current technology and engineering design. The program is course intensive and requires a design project with a written report rather then a formal research thesis. Through careful and individualized curriculum planning, the program accommodates students from a wide variety of backgrounds who seek advanced training in a multiplicity of different subjects [more info].
