Most of us will casually encounter dozens of embedded systems by mid-morning each day throughout our residences, roadways, workplaces and retail stores. These intelligent machines are a permanent part of our global landscape, and are continuously being expanded and upgraded by a world of forward-thinking engineers and entrepreneurs.

To help our students, alumni and industry friends keep pace with these technology trends – including the Internet of Things – the Department of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering has expanded its options in embedded systems design, starting in fall 2015.

The Embedded Systems Engineering (ESE) professional master’s program is structured to provide students with a broad, versatile skillset and coupled with industry input for continuous curriculum updates. Current trends covered in the program include:

  • ARM Processors
  • Capacitive Touch
  • Computer/Machine Vision (Industrial)
  • Consumer Wearables
  • FPGA/SoC Home Automation (Industrial)
  • Imaging
  • Memory/Storage
  • Sensors/MEMS
  • Smartphone Apps
  • Solid State Lighting
  • Transportation Autonomy
  • Web-enablement (Internet of Things)
  • Wireless Protocols & Devices

This new program is offered under the College of Engineering and Applied Science’s Master of Engineering degree. Through flexible core course options and electives, students enrolled in the ESE program may pursue a 9-credit hour certificate or a 30-credit hour degree at an introductory cost of $860/credit hour (residents) or $990/credit hour (non-residents).

With our newly added ESE classes, students now have access to all of the courses they need to complete a master’s degree in this dynamic field.
