Graduate Degree Programs > Master of Engineering


There are three distinct elements to our Master of Engineering curriculum. Overall you will be required to complete 25 semester units divided into these three areas:

Leadership Courses: You will take two courses on engineering leadership, covering topics of importance to engineering developers and managers such as organizational behavior, intellectual property, marketing, and much more. These courses employ the case study method used in many of the top business schools. Learn more here.
Capstone Project: A unique and important feature of the Berkeley Masters of Engineering is the capstone project experience. You will join a team of 3-5 students and pursue a specific problem or opportunity that can be addressed by technology, and gain direct experience in applying the skills you learn in your leadership courses. Learn more and see current capstone projects here.
Technical Courses: You will take four technical graduate courses, consulting our Sample Programs page. A petition is required if a course is not on the sample programs list. Each concentration includes a specific list of courses, giving you some suggestions. You can deviate from this list to accommodate special interests or take into account your prior academic work or work experience. The EECS Courses Page includes an extensive list of courses offered each semester.
