The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Texas A&M University currently offers two Master’s degree (non-thesis) distance learning options: the Master of Engineering in Electrical Engineering (DL MEN_EE) and the Master of Engineering in Computer Engineering (DL MEN_CE). To qualify for admission, you must hold a Bachelor of Science degree in the area of electrical engineering, computer engineering or other closely related fields. We do not offer online leveling (undergraduate) courses that could enable students from other disciplines to succeed in the DL programs. The standards for courses are the same as for on-campus programs and, without the required background, it would be very difficult to succeed.
The DL programs will offer the same level of education as our highly reputed on-campus programs. Enrolled students will have access to class lecture notes, tutoring from well-qualified teaching assistants and access to relevant software tools. The on-campus classes will be recorded on a daily basis and posted the same day on the course website. Students will experience the feeling of being in the classroom, and will benefit from the expertise of our world-class faculty. The DL programs will be as rigorous as the on-campus graduate programs; in fact, the DL programs and the MEng programs are quite similar. Students will deal with same set of assignments, laboratories and examinations. Since several courses require the use of proprietary software, the DL programs are currently intended for U.S. citizens and U.S. residents only; however, we expect to offer these programs to the international community in the near future.
Be aware that the graduate admission committee will not review transcripts, resumes, statements of purpose, or other parts of the application prior to submitting a completed application to Texas A&M University through the ApplyTexas System.
