This MEng degree program puts an emphasis on successfully managing large scale and complex projects, a focus specific to this qualification. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that it is 60% technical and 40% engineering management, tailor made for the industry. Designed in consultation with industrial leaders in the areas of electrical and computer engineering, as well as business management, it will give you the skills to manage and lead teams of electrical and computer engineers as well as other engineering disciplines.

Due to the rapid technological evolution over the past decade, communications, information, visualization and sensing technologies are increasingly becoming integrated. As a result, the interface between electrical engineering and computer engineering, once very distinct fields in themselves, is a growth area in the technology industry. 

The combination of the two disciplines emphasizes the increasing importance of traditional electrical engineering subjects like electromagnetics and signal processing to the new age of computer engineering. This holistic approach to electrical and computer engineering produces students better prepared to integrate modern computing systems into devices, products and services capable of bettering the world.

This program will prepare you 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 information technology. In addition, it provides an in-depth focus on advanced engineering economics and innovation and entrepreneurship, giving you the tools to develop your own enterprise in the field of electrical and computer engineering.

Due to the ever-changing needs of this agile industry, our curriculum is constantly evolving to meet the needs of the market.

“On my recommendation, three of my friends joined ADU.”  

"I was determined to move outside of my comfort zone and challenge myself in a new place. I was very happy from the start. The brand-new College of Engineering building is superb, the lab facilities are state-of-the-art, and the professors are extremely supportive.

I love the challenge of every new project – and some of the course projects are very challenging indeed. The evening class schedule is perfect for us working postgraduate students.  

On my recommendation, three of my close friends joined ADU after me and are also studying for a Master of Engineering in Electrical and Computer Engineering. I think that tells you everything you need to know about the quality of the program and ADU itself.”

Tuition is based upon the College and/or Department classification as opposed to the course classification or level. Tuition rates for undergraduate students vary from the tuition rates for graduate students.

The tuition fee calculations are an example only and are based on the assumption that elective courses will be taken with the College that the student is taking their major with. However, if the student selects elective courses outside of this College, the total cost payable may increase or decrease to reflect the tuition rate of the College where the elective is delivered. 

Costs of books and supplies are not included in the Tuition and Fees. Students at Abu Dhabi University are also required to pay certain fees and other costs to attend the University. Abu Dhabi University reserves the right to change tuition and fee rates at any time. A tuition schedule is published prior to registration for each semester.
