You must complete a total of 30 credits, as described below, with an overall average of B, to earn a Master of Science in Telecommunications Networks degree at NYU-Poly. In addition, a B average is required in the core courses listed in Group 1 and Group 2 below.
You may apply a maximum of 9 credits to the MS in Telecommunications Networks from previous graduate work at an acceptable institution.
Students who have satisfactorily completed equivalent courses, as determined by the MS in Telecommunications Networks adviser, may replace required courses in Group 1 and Group 2 with other courses, starting with the remaining Group 2 courses. For example, if you previously took a course equivalent to EL 5373 Internet Architecture & Protocols Lab, you will be required to take the remaining four courses in Group 2. If you previously took 2 or more equivalent courses from Group 1 and 2, you can replace those with advanced courses. Permission from the program director is required for all substitutions.
EL 5363 Principles of Communication Networks, Credits: 3.00
If you satisfactorily completed a course equivalent to EL 5363 — for instance, EE 136 (Communication Networks, Credits: 3.00) or otherwise as determined by the program adviser — can replace it with 1 from Group 2.
You are required to take 4 out of the following 5 course choices:
In certain rare circumstances, and with approval of the program’s director, other computer science and electrical engineering courses may be used to fulfill the core requirement. You may not take both CS 6843 and EL 5373.
Depending on whether your project adviser teaches in the Computer Science (CS) or Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) departments, you must take 1 of the following:
You must obtain a project adviser and create an approved project plan before registering, however. The project should be completed in 1 semester. After obtaining approval, you may substitute the required 3-credit project with a 6-credit MS thesis. The extra 3 thesis credits will count toward the program elective in Group 4.
You must take 4 courses not already counted toward the core requirement from the partial list of electives below. Other courses not on this list can be taken with approval from the program director. Relevant management-department graduate courses can be taken with approval from the program adviser. No more than 2 MG courses can be counted toward this degree.
