Degree Requirements

The bridge program curriculum requires a basic knowledge of computer and communications fundamentals.

All master's degree candidates must complete a minimum of 30 credits, 9 in core courses and 21 in elective courses; or 21 credits must be from ECE courses.

The required courses provide the basics of Internet Engineering. Electives are to be chosen from the available course pool to tailor the program to the student's professional needs and interests. This program utilizes graduate courses in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Computer and Information Science, Management Information Systems, and Management Programs at NJIT. They provide the necessary blend of education required for appropriate strength in Internet Engineering.
