  • About the Program

    The College of Engineering (COE) at Abu Dhabi University offers the Master of Engineering in Electrical and Computer Engineering (MEngECE) program. The College also offers a Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering program (MSECE). The MEngECE responds to regional and international market demand for engineers with a unique blend of advanced ECE and Engineering Management backgrounds, thus preparing the Electrical and Computer Engineering project managers and industrial leaders of tomorrow. The MEngECE program has seven technical courses and three engineering management courses. Students are also expected to complete a capstone project in the area of Electrical and Computer Engineering project management. The program accepts students with bachelor’s degrees in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or related fields. Students who lack the necessary background in certain topics, as per their undergraduate transcript, may be admitted conditionally. Such students will need to take some undergraduate-level courses as remedial courses or pass challenge exams as determined by the Program Director.  

    The MEngECE paves the way for advancement in professional practice. Graduates of the program are ready to tackle complex problems in the areas of microelectronics, communications and networking, power and renewable energy, embedded systems, robotics, the Internet of Things, machine learning, signal processing, and Electrical and Computer Engineering Management. The graduates achieve the breadth and depth of knowledge and skills needed to innovate in today and tomorrow’s world where innovation, technology, communication, and energy are the driving forces for economic growth and prosperity. Moreover, they also receive the advanced business training required to successfully manage the large scale and complex projects of today. The program is designed with a schedule that minimizes disruption of work commitments.

    The program aims at producing graduate who can

    • apply current techniques, skills, and necessary tools in Electrical and Computer Engineering practices,
    • develop focused knowledge in areas of specialization in Electrical and Computer Engineering,
    • formulate, analyze and solve problems within the discipline, 
    • develop critical thinking, problem investigation, design, and research skills,
    • demonstrate effective oral and written communication skills,
    • recognize the social and ethical responsibilities of a professional working in the discipline, 
    • recognize the need for, and engage in life-long learning, and 
    • function effectively in teams to accomplish common goals.

    This program has been introduced at Abu Dhabi University in response to UAE market needs and is aligned with Abu Dhabi Vision 2030. It has been designed in consultation with industrial leaders and managers in the areas of Electrical and Computer Engineering. It also comes at the perfect time to serve the innovation movement in the country and the marsh towards smart cities with smart services in the area of education, health, government, industry, and business.

    Program Mission

    The mission of the M. Eng in ECE program is to provide an opportunity for fresh graduates in Electrical and Computer Engineering or related field as well as working electrical and computer professionals to obtain a Master degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering on a carefully designed schedule that minimizes disruption of work commitments. The program is designed to provide Electrical and Computer professionals with a wide range of technical skills that would enhance their analytical abilities and knowledge in the area of Electrical and Computer Engineering, thus making them an asset to their organization.
