The program focuses on innovative and exciting research areas ranging from the design, analysis, and optimization of high-performance computing systems, to the fabrication of cutting-edge microelectromechanical actuators to new research frontiers on smart power grids, metamaterials, biomedical signal processing, and communication systems.
The MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering prepares students as highly skilled engineers with necessary skills to address future needs of industry, government, and humanity.
Students can select from two concentrations, course- or thesis-based options, and experiential learning opportunities. Concentration choices include:
1) hardware and software for machine intelligence
2) computer vision, machine learning, and algorithms
Students in the Hardware and Software for Machine Intelligence concentration will learn skills in developing MI systems that solve problems through hardware-software co-design of efficient real-time, high-performance, and distributed MI implementations with security and safety considerations.
The Computer Vision, Machine Learning, and Algorithms program prepares students to study image motion and tracking; algorithmic foundations of robotics; applications of parallel and high-performance algorithms; the human visual system and visual cognition; localization, mapping, and navigation; and clustering and regression analysis.

What our Students Say
“The [co-op] project I was assigned to involved a lot of new technological concepts in the computer graphics field that I knew very little about. With constant guidance from my mentor and manager at Qualcomm, I was able to learn the fundamentals and begin working on the assigned tasks. It was a great experience.”

Connect with a Current Student
Working with the Graduate School of Engineering, graduate student ambassadors provide both prospective and admitted students with the information they need to transition to Northeastern University. Their mission is to offer a glimpse into life as a current Husky and deliver the student perspective of graduate school. Ambassadors engage the community while demonstrating educational excellence and maintaining a high level of campus involvement in the College of Engineering and within in the entire university.
