UND consistently rank among the best for educational quality, affordability, and career outcomes. We are recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a top online graduate engineering program in the nation.
M.S.E.E. vs. M.Eng. in Electrical Engineering
UND offers both Electrical Engineering Master of Science (M.S.E.E.) and Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) degrees. It is recommended you connect with the Department of Electrical Engineering before making a final decision. However, in general, a M.Eng. program is more course-based, while the more popular M.S. program includes a thesis or research project/independent study.
Collaborate on research opportunities with UND's Department of Mechanical Engineering, Department of Chemical Engineering, College of Nursing & Professional Disciplines, School of Aerospace, and School of Medicine & Health Sciences.
Gain the broad and practical electrical component and device engineering knowledge valued in the job market.
Participate in the annual NASA Robotics competition at the NASA Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
