Degree Requirements

To satisfy the MS degree requirements, students must complete 30 credits as described below. Of these, at least 18 credits should be EL credits and at least 6 credits should be CS credits.

Group 1 - Core Courses: 9 Credits

(Choose 3 of the following)

Group 2: 6-12 Credits

Two sequences in this group each containing two courses; one course in each sequence may be a core course in Group l. Both sequences must be in EL or CS courses and at least one must be an EL sequence. Approved course sequences are detailed in the ECE Graduate Student Manual.

Group 3: 6-12 Credits

Electives may be chosen with adviser approval from graduate offerings in EL, CS and, occasionally, pertinent courses from other departments. With adviser approval, students may select other groups or individual courses if they relate to computer engineering.

Group 4: 3 Credits

Students must take a project (EL 9953 ) that relates to the computer engineering discipline and is adviser-approved.

Minimum total: 30 Credits

Thesis option:

A 6-credit thesis (EL 997x ) may be selected and used to replace:

  1. One elective from Group 3
  2. The 3-credit project from Group 4


NYU-Poly requires a GPA of 3.0 in all graduate courses, except those used for the undergraduate degree. No more than 9 of 30 credits may be taken outside NYU-Poly. Also, such credits are not used in computing the GPA. An average of 3.0 is required in courses taken to satisfy groups 1 and 2 above. These courses must be taken at NYU-Poly. If some courses are excused because the student took them in an undergraduate program or received transfer credits, adviser-approved substitute courses are used to calculate this average. Overall, 30 credits are required for the degree. Students should consult the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Graduate Student Manual. The manual provides detailed rules and procedures, including student status, transfer credits, recommended electives and one-year sequences, current areas of research and disqualification for low grades.
