The newly emerging discipline of embedded systems lies at the intersection of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. The Master of Science in Engineering in Embedded Systems (EMBS) is offered jointly by the Departments of Computer and Information Science and Electrical and Systems Engineering within the School of Engineering and Applied Science.

About

This program is ideally suited for students with either computer science or electrical engineering academic backgrounds who wish to pursue industrial jobs in automotive, aerospace, defense, and consumer electronics, as well as for practicing engineers in the embedded systems industry who want to gain knowledge in state-of-the-art tools and theories. The core topics span embedded control, real-time operating systems, model-based design and verification, and implementation of embedded systems. Students enroll in a total of ten courses to complete the EMBS program, five core courses and five electives.
We have strong connections to various embedded-centric companies and actively help students with networking. Our EMBS graduates have joined these companies.

We would like to emphasize that EMBS program is suitable for students who are interested in technical careers in embedded systems industry (automotive, avionics, consumer electronics, medical devices, defense, as the list above suggests). Students interested in more general computer science education should consider our CIS MSE program (suitable for students with an undergraduate degree in computer science) or MCIT program (suitable for students without a degree in computer science).
