George Washington University Online Master’s Programs in Engineering
- District of Columbia
Our online Master’s programs in engineering teach students the skills they need to pursue or advance into careers in those fields. By capitalizing on our close connections to Washington, D.C. and the history of achievement and innovation that distinguish GW as a pioneer in technical education, we offer these online engineering graduate programs with the same curricula and faculty as on campus.
The George Washington University’s online Master of Science in electrical engineering (M.S. in EE) offers students both the core engineering and the specialized technical learning they need to plan, design, implement, and manage sophisticated electrical systems. Graduates will be capable of working in the present technological environment, and of adapting to the profession as it advances.
The online M.S. in EE offers three focus areas for students to develop expertise in the high-demand electrical engineering specialties of:
- Electrical Power and Energy
- Signal and Image Processing, Systems and Controls
- Communications and Networks
The online master’s in engineering management provides a specialized alternative to traditional business coursework, focusing specifically on technical management and organizational leadership in engineering projects. Students of the program develop a thorough understanding of technical management, which can be applied directly to technology companies, scientific institutions, manufacturers, and other leading-edge technical environments.
While many engineering management programs put more emphasis on technical skills, this program’s curriculum is primarily designed to provide a thorough analysis of technical organizations and how to lead them most effectively.
The online master's in systems engineering program provides students with a thorough understanding of systems engineering practice, including system requirements, architecture, and operations, with all coursework based on the latest research.
The M.S. in systems engineering prepares students to lead technical organizations and companies by providing a world-class understanding of project management, emphasizing the quantitative aspects of leading-edge technical environments. Because of this interdisciplinary focus, graduates of the program have gone on to confidently lead technical projects and pursue new roles in their careers.
