Visit the official programme website for more information


Students are able to choose from a coursework or a thesis option; both provide the opportunity to acquire advanced skills and further conceptual understanding of electrical engineering. Graduates of the Electrical Engineering (MSEE) program at the University of Washington Bothell are ready to advance in their careers with the skills to design, analyze and optimize electronic and electrical systems.

Designed for working professionals and recent graduates, the MSEE program allows students to earn a master’s degree in a convenient full or part-time program, with class times in the late afternoon and evening.

The Graduate Certificate in Electrical Engineering Foundations (GCEEF) is a series of six graduate level courses that focus on a breadth of basic electrical engineering topics. The GCEEF can help students who have a STEM background in a degree other than electrical engineering meet the admission requirements for the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering at UW Bothell. The GCEEF also serves as significant preparation for working professionals who desire to deepen their knowledge of electrical engineering concepts. GCEEF courses are taught in the evening, meeting twice a week.
