Request Info Visit Apply

Illinois Tech’s Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering/Master of Science in Computer Engineering accelerated master's degree program allows students the opportunity to pursue advanced studies and complete both degrees in as few as five years.

Our undergraduate electrical engineering curriculum emphasizes both theory and practical applications by providing a solid background in engineering science and mathematics, providing students with an integrated and hands-on approach to understanding complex subjects, and finding solutions to challenging technical problems.

The graduate program in computer engineering builds a strong foundation in all aspects of the design and development of computer systems, including a specialization within a major area. 

In this program, students will gain hands-on experience in the areas of computer hardware design, computer networking and telecommunications, and computer system and application software.

Students also have the option to pursue thesis research under the guidance of a faculty adviser.
