To enter this program, you need to have a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from an accredited institution, with a superior undergraduate academic record and a GPA of 3.0 or above. Students who do not meet these requirements will be considered individually for admission and may be admitted upon completion of specific undergraduate courses to remove preparation deficiencies.
Applicants without a BS in Electrical Engineering—but who are otherwise sufficiently prepared for admission without undergraduate deficiencies—may be required to take specified undergraduate and introductory level graduate electrical engineering courses. Only graduate courses count toward the master’s degree.
A student with a BS in a field other than electrical engineering also may consider the departmental master’s programs in computer engineering, electrophysics, system engineering, telecommunication networks, or the Master of Engineering in Interdisciplinary Studies in Engineering program, or the several graduate certificate programs NYU-Poly offers.
