MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering


Course Description

The graduate programs in Electrical and Computer Engineering are designed to prepare students for a broad range of careers by providing a foundation of study in several technical areas. Your course of study will be individualized to suit your interests, with intensive training in numerous specializations, such as all aspects of computer engineering, control systems, signal processing and communications, information assurance, VLSI, microelectronics, electro-optics, and power/energy.

The Master's of Science (MS) degree program prepares students for development-oriented engineering careers and/or continuation onto doctoral studies by providing a balance of advanced theory and practical engineering knowledge. The typical time for completion of the MS is 18–24 months of full-time study.

Applicant Qualifications

- Undergraduate major in electrical engineering, computer engineering or related field
- Previous coursework experience in each of the following (or equivalent) areas:
*Calculus through differential equations
*Computer programming
*Electrical circuits
*Electronics
*Digital design logic
*Laboratory experience

- Qualified applicants with non-ECE backgrounds may be extended an offer of conditional admission which will last until they fulfill the department's requirements for regular admission (generally, completion of specific undergraduate courses)
- Minimum GRE quantitative scores of 700 (old scale; 155 new scale); (750 old scale preferred; 169 new scale). GRE scores not required for graduates of ABET-accredited engineering programs
- Minimum TOEFL score of 80 (internet-based exam) for students whose native language is not English. A minimum score of 100 is desirable for students seeking teaching assistantships

All applicants must submit the following:

- Online graduate degree application and application fee
- Transcripts from each college/university at which you earned a degree
- Two letters of recommendation (except PhD applicants, as described above)
- Personal statement (2-3 pages) describing your reasons for pursuing graduate study, your career aspirations, your special interests within your field, and any unusual features of your background that might need explanation or be of interest to your program's admissions committee.
- Resume or Curriculum Vitae (max. 2 pages)
- Official GRE scores

And, for international applicants:
- International Student Financial Statement form
- Official bank statement/proof of support
- Official TOEFL, IELTS, or PTE Academic scores

(Student Profile)

Pete Watson '10

4932.jpg Almost 25 years ago, Skormin taught Watson’s father, Joe, and the two have remained friends ever since. So when the younger Watson was looking at prospective engineering schools, Skormin showed him around the Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science.

At the time, Watson was considering Clarkson University and the Rochester Institute of Technology, both of which accepted him. But comparing the three made his decision clear.

“The pricing was much more expensive at those schools,” he said. “And what’s really the benefit of paying all that much more money for an education there versus here?”

Even though RIT offered him substantial scholarships that would have made the costs comparable, Watson appreciated Binghamton’s newer facilities and campus culture.

“RIT is mostly just an engineering school,” said Watson, 22, of Endicott. “Their population is mostly just guy engineers. The diversity on campus is a lot better here.”

After graduation, Watson will enter BAE’s three-year Engineering Leadership Development Program, which will rotate him through different jobs at the Johnson City facility while keeping him at Binghamton University to earn his master’s degree.

“He’s going to work at the same place his father worked for 25 years,” Skormin said. “Having two generations working in the same company is very nice. It is very honorable. It is kind of an old-fashioned spirit.”

Skormin has no doubt Watson will excel in BAE’s leadership program because he worked closely with Watson on his senior design project, designing and building a working simulator of a hybridization scheme for a fuel-cell vehicle.

Watson and teammates Jonathan Pantano and Meghan Ludwig’s project simulated how a hybrid fuel-cell vehicle controls power between sources while maintaining a constant speed going uphill (when extra power flows from super capacitors), on flat surfaces (when power flows through fuel cells) and going downhill (when energy flows from braking back to super capacitors).

“The hardest part was building the controls systems, which (teammates) Jon and Meghan worked on,” Watson said. “I designed the power supply and built it and the printed circuit boards for it. I learned a lot about hardware implementation and how to implement a power supply. I had taken a class on it and we just learned what they are and how to design them, but it’s a whole other thing to have to implement that knowledge into the real world.”
