ECE MS 1+1 and 3+1+1: Earn an Elite U.S. Master's Degree by Starting in Your Home Country
The MS ECE 1+1 is a two-year program that begins in your home country and ends in the U.S. Spend the first two semesters taking classes in a live environment, or live courses delivered directly to your device, then travel to the U.S. to complete your second year on our campus in Amherst, Massachusetts.
The MS ECE 3+1+1 option gives students access to the 1+1 degree, available to students in their fourth year of an undergraduate degree. Students can finish their fourth year of college while beginning the MS ECE degree in their home country. They can then travel to the U.S. to complete their degree on the UMass Amherst campus.
In both programs, students will learn new approaches to electrical and computer engineering from professors and researchers who are at the forefront of technological innovation in the United States and around the world. Their studies will span two continents, giving students a collaborative and unparalleled cross-cultural learning experience.
Professional and practical, the program provides high-level training and hands-on experience in cutting-edge technology, which culminates with at least one year of residence on the UMass Amherst campus. Students progress through the program together as a cohort and are taught exclusively by UMass Amherst professors for the duration of the program. The program is open to students all over the world, including those in Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe and the Middle East.
