Iowa State University’s online master’s in electrical engineering program, housed within the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECpE) at ISU, was recently ranked as seventh in the top 10 best online master’s in electrical engineering programs in the United States, according to OnlineSchoolsReport.
OnlineSchoolsReport used six data points to judge which programs are the best. They measured student satisfaction, admission rates, the number of programs offered by the school, the median debt of graduates from the program, how many degrees are offered within the department and what percentage of students at that school graduated from that department.
At least 35 programs were ranked by the OnlineSchoolsReport. Students graduating from this program in ECpE had a small amount of debt at roughly $15,250, and student satisfaction was measured at 72.40%. The average amount of time to finish the master’s program online in electrical engineering is five years, at a comfortable pace.
Iowa State has been offering a degree in electrical engineering for over 100 years, starting in 1909, a prestigious program well known for pioneering the world’s first digital computer, the first handheld scientific calculator and the world’s first portable phone.
