Master in Electrical Engineering


Program Description

Rapidly developing global technologies are changing the way we live. The Master of Science (MS) in Electrical Engineering at RIT Dubai combines theoretical fundamentals as well as practical aspects in this dynamic field and educates students in practices, methodologies, and cutting-edge techniques. You'll build on your experience of engineering and can choose to focus on two areas: Communications or Control Systems.

The MS degree in Electrical Engineering is awarded upon successful completion of an approved program of study, including courses in such areas as engineering mathematics, communications, and control.

Students have the option to graduate on either thesis, graduate paper, or comprehensive exam option. RIT Dubai offers the program in its entirety in Dubai, but students can study abroad or transfer to the main campus in Rochester, New York, subject to achieving additional respective requirements and approvals.

Flexible Timings: All courses are offered during weekday evenings on our Dubai campus from 6 - 9 pm, enabling working professionals to complete the master's program in as little as 18 months.

Career Options

With a shortage of electrical engineering talent in the job market, particularly in the GCC, the demands for RIT Dubai graduates remains at an all-time high. RIT’s highly regarded electrical engineering program uniquely combines the rigor of theory with hands-on applications and laboratory experiments in order to provide in-depth knowledge of the subject matter. Our graduates are working in a range of roles including Project Managers, Systems Engineers, Project Engineers and General Manager.
