B.S./M.S. Dual Degree Program 
Electrical and ComputerEngineering

From nanobots to the national grid, electrical and computer engineers create the systems that power and control our world
The field of electrical and computer engineering is vast, and the recent renaming of the department to electrical and computer engineering more accurately characterizes its breadth. It covers the design, construction, and operation of every kind of electrical component, circuit, and system - from fundamental control systems to management of power grids, from simple embedded systems to modern networks and the internet of things, from simple signal processing to machine learning, from basic computer architecture to large configurable systems using FPGAs and GPUs. It's integral to modern life and necessary if we are to build a more sustainable world. Where better to become an electrical and computer engineer than in the heart of Silicon Valley?
At California College, you will study with distinguished faculty members who bring global challenges and state of the art experience to their classrooms and research. They've developed a curriculum that is both practical and innovative, and takes care to address ethical and societal impacts of engineering.
You will get hands-on experience in well-equipped modern laboratories and project spaces as well as through our co-op program, internship opportunities, and independent projects.
Our Bachelor's, Master's, and Ph.D. degrees all offer specializations, and our graduate certificate programs provide a quick way to become skilled in a specific area.
CAC EE graduates are highly sought-after for their technical knowledge and leadership skills here in the Valley and beyond.

Our Master's, Doctoral, and certificate programs are intensive, hands-on, and in tune with the future of the field.

Electrical and Computer Engineering is at the heart of the most rapidly evolving technology our world has ever seen. Our graduate programs are designed to educate and equip engineers with the most up to date and necessary skills to pursue prominent careers here in Silicon Valley and throughout the world. Through advanced courses and research, our graduate students will gain cutting-edge knowledge in this diverse and exciting field. Our courses are concentrated in six focus areas and designed to enhance the expertise of prospective and practicing engineers. We accept undergraduates with degrees in engineering, mathematics, and related fields.
Master of Science
Our Master's of Science program offers a choice of six primary focus areas. Each focus area has general requirements and selections of electives in subareas. With guidance from your advisor, you will design an individualized program to meet your career goals, and complete a Program of Studies Form.
Certificate Programs
Our certificate programs provide intensive graduate study of a narrow topic. At roughly one-third of the units of a Master's degree, you can complete a certificate program more quickly. Certificates include Digital System Design, Integrated Circuit Design and Technology, Digital Signal Processing and Machine Learning, Digital Signal Processing Theory, Fundamentals of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and RF and Applied Electromagnetics.
These programs are appropriate for students working in industry and seeking to update their skills or for those interested in changing their career path.
Engineer's Degree
More advanced than a Master's, our Engineer's Degree is a high-level terminal degree designed for practicing engineers. It requires 45 additional units beyond the course of study for the Master's as well as publishing a paper in a peer-reviewed journal.
Ph.D. Program
For those seeking to pursue an academic career, our Ph.D. program emphasizes independent research with support from our renowned faculty. We expect all candidates to complete within eight years, but most finish in significantly less time.
