The 16-20 month MS ECE Advanced Studies program is for students admitted into the MS ECE standard program. The Advanced Studies program allows students to take additional courses and go into greater depth and specialization than the standard MS ECE program. All students are admitted into the standard MS ECE program and can choose to transfer at the end of their first year into the MS ECE Advanced Studies program. Students who choose the Advanced degree have two options:
- Course option: Students are required to complete 133 units through coursework.
- Project option: Students are required to complete 97 units through coursework and an additional 36 units of project work.
