The University of Washington is offering a different kind of degree: a Professional Master’s Program in electrical engineering for students “whose ultimate goal is to pursue careers in industry,” says May Lim, director of UW’s Electrical and Computer Engineering program.
While a traditional thesis-based master’s often leads to Ph.D. study or careers in research and academia, Lim says the PMPEE’s industry-focused curriculum turns out graduates ready for robotics, machine learning and more.
“Our flexible degree accommodates both working professionals seeking advancement and full-time students in preparing to launch their careers,” said Lim. Application deadline for autumn quarter is May 17.
