edX is pleased to announce the launch of an online Master’s in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Purdue University School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The program is designed for learners that want to gain deep knowledge in electrical and computer engineering, with the option to choose from seven broad tracks. This program is ranked the #5 online graduate Engineering program according to U.S. News & World Report, and will be available for $22,500 USD.
This new Master’s degree is the latest program to launch following edX’s October 2018 announcement of 10 disruptively priced and top-ranked online Master’s degree programs, including an MBA from Boston University that was announced in July 2019.
Master’s degrees on edX are unique because they are stacked degree programs with a MicroMasters® program component. A MicroMasters program is a series of graduate-level courses that provides learners with valuable standalone skills that translate into career-focused advancement, as well as the option to use the completed coursework as a stepping stone toward credit in a full Master’s degree program. Purdue is launching a MicroMasters program in Advanced Electronics that will stack up to the full Master’s degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering.
Dimitri Peroulis, Head and Reilly Professor of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University, shared: “We are delighted to launch advanced programs through our partnership with edX. Purdue ECE world-class faculty have teamed up with online learning experts to produce a comprehensive and flexible Master’s program. By completing their desired combination of rigorous one- and three-credit-hour courses, ECE online students will be able to gain both the depth and breadth they need to lead engineering teams world-wide.”
Additional master’s degrees in mechanical engineering and civil engineering are planned for 2020. We are excited for the three degree programs, which will provide edX learners with a variety of options for pursuing an advanced engineering degree.
The School of Electrical and Computer Engineering will offer the Master’s of Electrical and Computer Engineering degree starting in January 2020. The program is now accepting applications, with a priority deadline of November 1.
